Binger Flushed Away

[user101598] • Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 500 ante
Michael Binger - eliminated

Michael Binger moved all in for about 200,000 on a board of {6-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{2-Clubs} after a bet of 46,000 from Kim Frederiksen and a call from Dmitriy Stelmak. Frederiksen then re-shoved for effectively 270,000 total sending Stelmak deep into the tank.

After a minute or two Stelmak called the clock on himself and with ten seconds remaining he released his cards.

"I might be drawing dead," Frederiksen said to Binger turning over {10-Clubs}{8-Clubs}.

"No," Binger sighed tabling {6-Spades}{6-Hearts}. "I have top set, need the board to pair."

The dealer burned and turned the {9-Clubs} and Stelmak winced in his seat at the site of a fourth club. With only one card to come Binger needed any nine, six, four or two but found none of the above when the {3-Diamonds} rivered, eliminating him from the tournament.

Stelmak told the table that he indeed folded a club higher than ten, which was good for Frederiksen because he won the pot and is now up to 780,000 chips.
