Event #43: $2,500 Mixed Big Bet

Benyamine Puts Hellmuth to the Test

GeoffFisk • Level 13: 600-1,200, 1,200 ante

No-Limit Five Card Draw

David Benyamine opened to 5,500 from the cutoff, and Phil Hellmuth three-bet to 10,400 from the big blind, with Benyamine calling.
Both players drew one, Hellmuth checked, and Benyamine bet out for 15,800, more than half of Hellmuth's remaining stack.

Hellmuth stood up, muttering to himself for a couple of minutes, while Benyamine remained stoic. Hellmuth continued to agonize over the decision, becoming more animated, and Benyamine finally broke out into a quiet laugh. After a couple of more minutes Hellmuth folded, and Benyamine chipped up to 167,000.
