Benson Mauled by a Kitty

Chad_Holloway • Level 8: 250-500, 50 ante

We happened upon the action with 2,000 out in front of Kitty Kuo in the small blind and Gary Benson all in from the big. Kuo was debating what to do with her stack, and eventually she opted to call off for right around 14,000 total.

Kuo: {a-Clubs}{q-Clubs}
Benson: {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}

It was a flip, but Kuo needed to improve to stay alive. That's just what she did when the {8-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{2-Hearts} flop gave her a pair of queens. Neither the {5-Clubs} turn nor {6-Spades} river helped Benson, and he was left with just 3,000 after the hand.
