Event #5: €10,400 No-Limit Hold'em (Split Format)

Lots of Preflop Action, Not So Much Post Flop


From the hijack seat, Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi raised to 525. David Benyamine was in the cutoff seat and flatted before 2010 World Series of Poker Europe Main Event champion James Bord three-bet from the button to 2,200. Play folded through the blinds and fell back on Mizrachi. He asked Bord how much he had in chips, which Bord showed him. Mizrachi then four-bet to 6,525. That was Benyamine's cue to get out of the way and he slid his hand into the muck. Bord mulled over his decision for a bit and then called.

The flop came down {Q-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} and both players checked to see the {A-Diamonds} land on fourth street. Both checked again and the river completed the board with the {J-Clubs}. Mizrachi fired a bet of 5,500 and Bord quickly gave it up.
