Event 17: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Table #447

We have been watching Table #447 for the past thirty-minutes and not a lot has happened. The most interesting thing about the table is the constant needle that Antonio Esfandiari is sticking into the ribs of Matt Marafioti for taking so long to make his decisions. Here is the action from the last thirty-minutes:

David Benyamine raised to 13,000 in first position and Daniel Weinman three-bet to 23,000 in the cutoff. Benyamine made the call and the pair went to the flop. The action checked through on a board of {A-Hearts} {K-Spades} {8-Diamonds} {3-Hearts} {K-Hearts} and Benyamine turned over {8-Hearts} {8-Spades} for the boat whilst Weinman had {9-} {9-}.

Esfandiari raised on the button and Benyamine defended his big blind. The flop was {A-Clubs} {10-Diamonds} {5-Diamonds} and Benyamine took it down with a 46,000 check-raise after Esfandiari had tried to pinch it with a 16,000 c-bet.

Benyamine limped into the pot from the small blind and Mohsin Charania checked his option. The flop was {5-Spades} {6-Hearts} {2-Hearts} and Benyamine check-folded to a 9,000 Charania bet.

Charania raised to 13,000 in mid-position and Esfandiari defended the big blind. The flop was {J-Clubs} {7-Hearts} {6-Clubs} and both players checked. Moving onto the turn and we saw the {7-Spades} and Charania won the pot with a 14,000 bet.

Benyamine limped from the small blind and Charania checked his option. The flop was {A-Spades} {7-Clubs} {4-Hearts}, Benyamine bet 6,000 and Charania called. The turn was {8-Clubs} and the same action ensued; this time for 15,000. Finally we saw the {9-Clubs}, both players checked and Charania won the pot holding {A-Hearts} {6-Clubs}.
