Event #17: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Benefield's River Bluff Backfires


Peter Gilmore, David Benefield and the two blinds saw a cheap flop of {5-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}. Action checked to Gilmore who bet 80,000. Benefield made the call as the blinds stepped aside.

The turn was the {A-Hearts} and it went check, check, before Gilmore fired 125,000 on the {10-Spades} river. Benefield wasn't done just yet as he raised it up to 360,000. Gilmore cut down the calling chips and tossed them into the pot, much to the disappointment of Benefield who tossed his cards straight into the muck in resignation.

Gilmore didn't have to show, but he flashed {A-Diamonds}{J-Clubs} for top pair. He's up to 1.975 million with Benefield in trouble on 565,000.
