Benger and Martini Make Good Laydowns

• Level 29: 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante

Griffin Benger opened to 260,000 from under the gun with {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs} and Julien Martini just called in the cutoff with {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}. Jason Koonce also came along from the small blind with {4-Spades}{4-Clubs} and an action flop of {q-Spades}{6-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} hit the board.

Koonce checked his set to Benger who continued for 375,000 with surprisingly the worst hand. Martini called with his top pair and Koonce made a huge check-raise to 2,000,000. Benger laid his hand down and Martini eventually sent his cards to the muck as well.
