Francisco Benitez eliminated in 2nd place

Erik Seidel limped in on the button for Francisco Benitez to raise it up to 2,800,000. Seidel responded with a shove and the bigger stack for Benitez to make the call for the 25,925,948 he had in total.

Francisco Benitez: {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}
Erik Seidel: {a-Hearts}{8-Hearts}

The flop came {4-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{j-Hearts} for Benitez to stay ahead with the higher kicker but Seidel picked up the nut-flush draw.

The turn was the {a-Diamonds} to keep things the same and Benitez was looking to double up but the {3-Hearts} that was quickly peeled by Seidel gave him the nut-flush.

Seidel wins his ninth WSOP bracelet for $977,842 while Benitez, the Day 1 chip leader finished as the runner-up for $759,419.

A recap is to follow.
