Benton Records a Triple-Double

mnuwwarah • Level 15: 4,000-8,000, 500 ante
Michael Benton tripled then doubled up.

Michael Benton moved all in under the gun for 19,500 and got called in two spots. After a {7-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{9-Spades} runout, he couldn't roll over his {7-Spades}{7-Diamonds} fast enough, while Daniel Holmes showed {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs} for top pair.

A few hands later, he called a min-raise out of the big blind from Seville Hale, and he open shoved the {4-Clubs}{7-Spades}{2-Hearts} flop. Hale called immediately with {4-Spades}{2-Spades} for bottom two, and Benton showed {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts} for an overpair. He turned Hale dead when the {8-Spades} hit the board, and a {10-Hearts} finished out the hand.
