The pile of chips in front of David Benyamine consists of no more than a few chips. Thinking we made a mistake counting after he folded the second nut flush we asked him if his count was correct. Benyamine told us he lost a huge 20,000-chip pot after the folded flush with aces against ace-jack. The chips went into the pot on a flop and the Frenchman got very unlucky on either the turn or the river.
David Benyamine only has 2,100 chips left behind and has a lot of ground to cover before he's back in the race.
