Event #27: $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship

Benyamine Busts Early

[user145752] • Nivel 9: 1,200-2,400, 0 ante

We are just a few hands in, but we have already suffered our first casuality of the day: David Benyamine. He came into the day with 13,400 chips, but those are all gone after he ran into Mikhail Smirnov. Benyamine raised in middle position, and Smirnov put in a third bet in the small blind. Benyamine called, and they took a flop of {6-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}. Smirnov quickly bet and Benyamine quickly called. The same occured on the {8-Hearts} turn, and the players saw the {q-Spades} hit the river. Smirnov bet again, and this time Benyamine raised. Smirnov didn't slow down though, and put in a three bet that put Benyamine all in. He called, and flipped over {a-Spades}{q-Hearts} for a rivered pair of queens, but Smirnov had {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} for an overpair. Benyamine left the table, and Smirnov collected the chips to up his stack to 105,000.
