Event #50: $5,000 Triple Chance No-Limit Hold’em

Benvenuti Binks a Double

[user66118] • Level 18: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

Michael Benvenuti opened to 12,500 in middle position, and Garrett Adelstein three-bet to 31,500. Benvenuti responded with a reraise to 60,000 total, and Adelstein took pause before shoving all in with his big stack. Benvenuti quickly called all in for 220,000 straight, and he was well ahead.

Benvenuti: {K-Diamonds} {K-Hearts}
Adelstein: {5-Clubs} {5-Hearts}

The {8-Diamonds} {7-Diamonds} {6-Clubs} flop was a good sweat as Adelstein flopped the open-ender to give himself another eight outs to the win. The {K-Clubs} turn left him dead to those eight outs, though, and the river {3-Hearts} was close but no cigar.

After paying off that big double, Adelstein drops back to 265,000 while Benvenuti lifts himself up to 451,500.
