A player in middle position opened to 1,200, and he found two callers including Aaron Benton.
The flop came out , and the preflop raiser continued out with a bet of 4,000. This time Benton was the only caller, and the two men went heads-up to the on the turn. The aggressor passed this time, and Benton took his cue to bet 7,000. His opponent then moved all in for about 16,000 total on a check-raise, and Benton made a reluctant but automatic call. And it was a good one.
Benton seemed almost apologetic for what was about to happen. "Aw, come on mate. Just fold. I have to call, there's forty thousand in there."
The river was a blank , and that knockout earns Benton the pot and a chip boost up over 70,000.
