Michael Benvenuti Eliminated in 14th Place ($4,682)

Michael Benvenuti - 14th place

Michael Benvenuti is the latest player to walk into the unstoppable force that is Michael Mizrachi.

He opened to 4,000 from the cut-off and was called by Larry Wright on the button before Mizrachi quickly three-bet to 20,000 from the big blind. Benvenuti thought for a minute and moved all in for around 66,000.

Wright then went into a very animated tank. He dragged his T-shirt up his torso so his belly button was exposed (probably his comfortable thinking zone!). This didn't do the trick so he pulled out a coin and flipped it so it almost landed on Mizrachi.

This didn't prompt an immediate decision and Mizrachi said, "Heads you fold, tails you fold?"

"It told me to fold but I don't want to," replied Wright. Eventually he did fold, and Mizrachi made the call and stood pat.

Mizrachi: {10-}{9-}{7-}{5-}{4-}.
Benvenuti drew one to go with {8-}{4-}{3-}{2-}. He was heartbroken to see a a {q-} appear to bust him.
