Benyamine Bounced

Shamus • Level 12: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante
David Benyamine

We came upon a big hand between Sami Rustom and David Benyamine that had reached fifth street with the board showing {6-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{5-Spades}{9-Hearts}{K-Hearts}. Rustom had set out a large river bet and Benyamine was tanking, then finally called for his last 55,000 or so.

Once showdown time had arrived, the player to Rustom's left pointed to his hand and said "seven-eight?" and indeed Rustom turned over {8-Spades}{7-Clubs} for the turned straight. Benyamine stood to leave and the player turned to him. "You have a set?" he asked, and Benyamine nodded that he did.
