David Benefield Eliminated in 8th Place (€115,000)

David Benefield - 8th Place

From early position, Richard Yong opened with a raise to 80,000. Action then folded to David Benefield on the button, and he reraised all in for 220,000. When play got back to Yong, he quickly tossed in the chips to make the call.

Yong held the {A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds} and was in a dominating position to knock out Benefield who held the {K-Spades}{Q-Spades}. On the flop, both players paired when the {K-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} fell, but it was Yong's kicker that kept him in front. From there, the turn brought the {5-Spades} and river the {2-Spades} to finish things off.

Benefield was eliminated in eighth place, but did earn €115,000 for his finish.
