Benny Villanueva

Pre-flop, Benny Villanueva got his remaining short stack of about 17,000 in and was called the player sitting across from him.

Benny: {k-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}
Opponent: {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}

The flop came {9-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{10-Clubs}. It did not pair any of his cards but he did pick up extra outs as he now had a chance at a gutshot straight.

Benny and the table grew even more excited as the {9-Clubs} landed on the turn, which now also gave him outs to a club flush.

River: {3-Clubs}

"Yeah!" shouted Benny as he happily slapped the table. With the unlikely flush, he doubles up and stays alive in the tournament.
