Benny Glaser Eliminated in 2nd Place ($341,274)
Seven Card Stud
Benny Glaser: / /
Jesse Klein: / /
Benny Glaser as the bring in called following the completion by Jesse Klein. Another bet by Klein followed on fourth which Glaser called with 275,000 behind. Klein then picked up the low suited draw and bet once more. Glaser could all but smile and eventually called it off.
Klein had an ace in the hole and spiked a gutshot straight flush draw on sixth while Glaser found some equity with a pair of kings. Klein peeled the four for two pair, reducing Glaser's outs to the two last kings. He only found a nine and had to settle for second place and a payday of $341,274.
The Brit was denied a fourth bracelet while Klein earned his maiden one and was almost immediately on a video call with the family. He earns the top prize of $552,182 and joins the WSOP winner's circle in one of the most challenging tournament formats.
A recap of today's action is to follow.
