Benyamine Loses a Big Chunk


Marcel Cole just relieved David Benyamine off more than a half a million chips to drop Benyamine all the way down to 250,000. Cole, Benyamine and a third player all put 38,000 in before a flop of {7-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{7-Clubs}. Cole led out for another 38,000 after the flop. The second player called before Benyamine raised to 138,000.

Cole debated his options and settled on a minimum re-raise to 238,000. That folded the second player, but Benyamine called. On the {6-Diamonds} turn Cole fired another 200,000 chips into the pot. Again Benyamine called. When the river came {3-Clubs}, Cole moved all in for his last 280,000, just slightly more than Benyamine had behind. When Benyamine folded, Marcel said, "Good lay down."

Cole is up to about 1,250,000.
