Jakob Miegel limped in on the button, Ben Bensimhon raised to 200,000, Miegel shoved for 1,300,000, and Bensimhon instantly called.

Jakob Miegel: {A-Spades}{7-Hearts}
Ben Bensimhon: {Q-Clubs}{J-Clubs}

Bensimhon flopped an open-ended straight draw to go with his live cards on a {K-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} flop. The turn brought the {J-Hearts} and put Bensimhon in a substantial lead. Miegel could now only win with one of the three remaining queens in the deck.

The river was the {A-Clubs} and Bensimhon hit Broadway to win it all. He pumped his fists, walked over to Miegel to give him a hug, then raised his hands high in the air in celebration. Miegel's deep run came to an end in second place, which resulted in a €58,308 payday.

Ben Bensimhon has become the first ever WSOP International Circuit Main Event winner on Dutch soil!
