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

Gary Benson Eliminated in 6th Place ($24,003)

[user80015] • Level 22: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante
Gary Benson - 6th place

Freddie Ellis completed to 12,000 and Gary Benson made it two bets to go. Ellis made the call before betting fourth to put Benson all in for his last 4,000; Benson obliged and the cards were tabled.

Ellis: {10-Clubs}{7-Hearts} / {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}
Benson: {Q-Spades}{9-Diamonds} / {K-Spades}{4-Hearts}

With Ellis in commanding shape, he caught the {Q-Clubs} on fifth as Benson found the {A-Diamonds}. Ellis spiked the {K-Diamonds} on sixth, and with Benson needing runner-runner, the {4-Clubs} wouldn't be what he was looking for as the {6-Diamonds} completed his board while the {5-Diamonds} for Ellis completed his.

For Benson's efforts, he collects $24,003 as Ellis continues to see his stack surge upwards.
