Event #7: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em Championship

Stein Breaks the Million-Chip Mark


Sam Stein raised to 42,000 from middle position and received calls from both the small blind and big, Michael Benvenuti and Eric Cloutier respectively. The three players watched the flop fall {3-Clubs}{3-Spades}{2-Diamonds} and it went check-check to Stein, who bet 58,000. Benvenuti made the call while Cloutier opted to get out of the way.

Both players then checked the {10-Diamonds} turn and watched as the {9-Clubs} was put out on the river. Benvenuti check-called a bet of 132,000 only to muck when Stein revealed {A-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}. With that, Stein is just over a million in chips.

Chip Counts
Sam Stein us 1,000,000 401,000
Michael Benvenuti us 330,000 -340,000
