Double Knockout for Spindler


From under the gun, Franck Kalfon raised to 7,300. In the next seat was Benny Spindler, and he reraised to 19,500. Behind Spindler, action folded to Christophe Benzimra in the cutoff seat. Benzimra, the 2009 EPT Warsaw champion, reraised all in for 59,600. Play then folded back to Kalfon, and he moved all in for 87,400. Spindler took a minute, then called.

Spindler: {Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs}
Benzimra: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}
Kalfon: {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}

On the flop, Kalfon took the lead when the {A-Spades}{J-Spades}{4-Spades} fell. Benzimra had a second-best hand now with his queen kicker losing to Kalfon's king kicker, but Spindler picked up a flush draw, so both players could still very easily lose.

The turn was the {K-Diamonds}, which left Spindler needing a spade that wasn't the king to bust both players and Benzimra needing a non-spade ten.

The river completed the board with the {6-Spades}, and Spindler made his flush. He busted both players en route to shooting up over 500,000 in chips.
