Michael Benko Eliminated in 18th Place ($27,695)
Nível 31 : 50,000-100,000, 15,000 ante
Michael Benko raised to 600,000 from early position leaving himself just 315,000 behind. Joel Wurtzel called from cutoff and with the action on Scott Margereson in the big blind he moved all in covering both players.
Benko quickly put his last 315,000 in the pot and Wurtzel got out of the way.
The dealer fanned the flop giving Margereson top set of kings and Benko was left drawing dead when the hit the turn. The meaningless completed the board and Benko was eliminated in 18th place.
