KaleGozer • Level 25: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante
Ben Bensimhon

In one of the first hands after the break, Ben Bensimhon raised to 60,000 in middle position. Action folded to Bart Lybaert in the big blind, who three-bet to 187,000. Bensimhon made the call in position.

The flop was all spades: {J-Spades}{9-Spades}{8-Spades}. Lybaert bet 235,000 and Bensimhon called. Both players checked the {J-Diamonds} on the turn. On the {K-Spades} river, Lybaert checked, Bensimhon bet 300,000, and Lybaert instantly called.

Bensimhon showed {9-Hearts}{9-Clubs} for a full house, Lybaert flashed {A-Spades}{A-Hearts} for the nut flush and mucked.
