Event #23: $2,500 Seven-Card Stud

Benson Scoops Monster

[user80015] • Level 19: 6,000-12,000, 1,500 ante
Gary Benson

Helmut Koch completed before Michael Mizrachi made it two bets. Freddie Ellis called before Gary Benson made it three bets to go with Frank Kassela, Mizrachi and Ellis calling as Koch folded.

Benson bet out on fourth and the three players called before Ellis bet fifth and both Mizrachi and Kassela folded as Benson called. Sixth street saw Ellis fire again with Benson calling before he bet seventh and Ellis called.

Mizrachi: {X-}{X-} / {A-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{9-Spades} (folded on fifth)
Ellis: {X-}{X-} / {2-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} / {X-}
Benson: {X-}{X-} / {10-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} / {X-}
Kassela: {X-}{X-} / {10-Clubs}{5-Spades}{6-Clubs} (folded on fifth)

Ellis tabled his {4-Spades}{2-Spades} / {9-Hearts} for two-pair, but it would be Benson's {K-Hearts}{K-Clubs} / {5-Diamonds} for kings-up that would see him scoop the mammoth pot to move into the chip lead.
