Harman Hangin' On

[user66118]

Daniel Idema was the bring-in with the {2-Diamonds}, but he'd not factor in the hand. Jen Harman completed with the {5-Clubs}, and another lady showing the {6-Diamonds} made it two bets. Harman called, and she was about to be heads up for her tournament life. She put the last of her money in on the next street.

The boards ran out thusly:

Harman: ({7-Hearts} {6-Spades}) / {5-Clubs} {9-Hearts} {2-Clubs} {8-Hearts} / ({7-Diamonds})
Opponent: ({10-Clubs} {10-Hearts}) / {6-Diamonds} {5-Diamonds} {7-Clubs} {A-Diamonds} / ({K-Clubs})

Harman made her straight by sixth street, and she dodged her opponent's low draw to scoop the whole thing and double up.

Grinder Grinding, Ahmed Near Dead

We caught up with the action on fourth street in a heads-up pot between Michael Mizrachi and Owais Ahmed.

Mizrachi: (x-x) / {2-Diamonds} {3-Diamonds} {8-Clubs} {8-Diamonds} / (x)
Ahmed: (x-x) / {Q-Spades} {A-Clubs} {J-Clubs} {5-Hearts} / (x)

Fourth street went check-check, and Ahmed bet his lead on fifth. Mizrachi raised, though, and Ahmed paused to consider. He was getting short on chips now as he splashed the extra bet into the pot. The call left him with just 2,200 chips in front of him. Mizrachi bet sixth and seventh streets, and Ahmed paid him off.

Mizrachi tabled {6-Clubs} {5-Diamonds} {2-Clubs} / {2-Diamonds} {3-Diamonds} {8-Clubs} {8-Diamonds} and Ahmed was already in the process of mucking. He knew it was going to be bad news, and now there's even worse news. He's got just 600 chips left.

Benyamine Busted

Chad_Holloway

We happened upon David Benyamine's table only to discover that the French pro was all in and helplessly watching his two opponents bet a side pot. One of those opponents folded on seventh street and Benyamine discovered the other player's pair of eights and 8-7-5 low was enough to beat his sevens and 8-7-6 low.

Benyamine: {A-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} / {6-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{7-Hearts}
Opponent: {A-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{4-Clubs} / {8-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{10-Spades}

With that, Benyamine exited the tournament area.

Hellmuth Flushed, Has No Boat

[user66118] • Level 7: 400-800, 100 ante

Welp, we've lost an 11-time WSOP bracelet winner. Don't worry, though, he's still got another ~55 chances at getting number 12 in '12.
