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.

Showdown
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.
