Bendik Joins the Big Stacks

zedmaster84 • Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 8,000 ante

"It's a good time for aces," Jan Bendik said after having just raked in a massive pot to see the Slovakian join the very biggest stacks in the final level of the night.

It started rather innocent as Florian Stellbaum limped, but then a raising war broke out and Stellbaum was all in for more than 300,000, Bendik snap-called.

Florian Stellbaum: {K-}{K-}
Jan Bendik: {A-Diamonds}{A-Spades}

The board came {8-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{6-Hearts} and Stellbaum was sent to the rail.

A late surge for a decent stack has also seen Oshri Lahmani and Rifat Gegic cross half a million in chips as well.
