Benjie Lim Eliminated in Fourteenth Place (US $7,200)

Benjie Lim

If we were to give any advice to the players still in the field, it would be pretty simple: stay out of Bryan Huang's way.

On a recent hand, a raising war between Benjie Lim and Bryan led to the latter going all-in and Benjie making the call:

Bryan: {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}
Benjie: {k-Clubs}{k-Spades}

It was looking like a Benjie double-up as Bryan was pretty much left looking to catch one of the three aces in the deck or some sort of miracle to pull out the win.

He didn't have to wait long as the flop came {a-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{8-Clubs}, giving him top pair and putting all the pressure on Benjie, who would need to catch the last king in the deck to stay alive.

It didn't happen for him as the turn {9-Diamonds} and river {5-Diamonds} were of no use, knocking him out in 14th place and giving Bryan a huge stack of 670,000.
