Silverman And Benelli Swap Places

Webjoker • Level 13: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

We arrived on the turn with the board displaying {9-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}. In the pot was a little under 60,000 it seemed, something that implied there had already been quite some action.

Steven Silverman was seated in the small blind and he pushed allin for 57,200. The decision was on Andrea Benelli and it was seemingly a tough one. He first counted out the calling chips, and then he counted out how much he would have behind.

Minutes passed and Benelli really looked unsure of what to do. Eventually he picked up the 57,200-stack between his thumb and index finger, and placed it in the middle.

Andrea Benelli: {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}
Steven Silverman: {A-Spades}{K-Spades}

Benelli, who finished 4th in the EPT Sanremo for €166,700 last week, needed a heart to kick Silverman out. It wouldn't go like that. Instead the {8-Spades} popped up on the river and Silverman doubled.
