Bent Out of Shape

[user68268]
No more smiling for Benton

On the flop of {Q-Clubs}{6-Spades}{6-Clubs}, Aaron Benton was all in for 23,100. His opponent tanked while everyone looked on. Some people, namely Eric Assadourian, event made some side bets on what Benton's opponent held. Assadourian had pocket pairs from kings through sevens. Eventually, the player called and revelaed that he had the {9-Hearts}{9-Spades}. Benton held the {A-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}. Benton's buddy Assadourian won the side bet he made, but Benton was much more worried about hitting the turn or river to double up.

The turn brought the {6-Diamonds} and then the river landed with the {3-Spades}. Benton wasn't able to improve past his opponent's nines and was eliminated from the event.
