Event 34: $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha - Six-Handed

The Two Davids Collide

David Benyamine down but not yet out

The two Frenchmen have collided and it is David Benyamine who has been left licking his wounds.

Benyamine raised to 16,000 in the cutoff, David Colin called in the small blind and Jason DeWitt also called in the big blind. The flop was {K-Spades} {10-Clubs} {8-Spades} and the action checked to Benyamine who bet 34,000. Back to Colin and he check-raised to a stack committing 150,000. DeWitt had a very difficult decision on his hands, but eventually decided to fold; Benyamine made the call. So off to the turn and everyone knew what was going to happen next.

Turn: {4-Hearts}

Colin moved all-in and Benyamine made the call.

Colin{A-Clubs} {K-Clubs} {Q-Hearts} {8-Hearts}
Benyamine{K-Diamonds} {Q-Hearts} {J-Diamonds} {8-Hearts}

So Benyamine had two-pair and the open-ended straight draw, while Colin had the same two pair with a gutshot.

River: {J-Spades}

Benyamine's hands flew up into the air as did DeWitt (who was no longer in the hand). Colin had rivered a straight in a huge pot. DeWitt told the table he reluctantly folded the nut flush hence his reaction. Benyamine looked to his girl on the rail and showed her his chips before getting back his head back into the action.

We hung around for an orbit thinking he would be in another showdown but as of yet there is no movement from our World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet holder.
