Bensimhon Runs Into Aces

OHairDJ • Level 11: 1,000-1,500, 1,500 ante
Eyal Bensimhon

The player first-to-act opened for 3,500 and action folded to Eyal Bensimhon in the lojack position, who three-bet to 10,000. It was then folded around to the player in the big blind, who went all in for 16,500.

The original raiser folded and Bensimhon called.

Bensimhon: {8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}
Big blind: {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}

"This is how I crack aces," Bensimhon declared.

However, the board ran out {4-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{k-Clubs}{10-Spades}{9-Diamonds} and Bensimhon was forced to double his opponent up.

Bensimhon is back down to a starting stack.
