EPT Copenhagen: Benelli downed

February 20, 2009

The Rasmus Nielsen show continues on the feature table, with the fearless Italian Andrea Benelli having his aces cracked. All the money went in on the flop — it was [8S]-[9C]-[QD], and Benelli shoved, which Nielsen called.

Benelli had those aces, Nielsen was behind but had plenty of outs with his [JD]-[QS]. They didn’t have to wait very long until one of them hit: the [10C] on the turn filled the straight and suddenly Benelli was drawing only to a chop.

It didn’t arrive and the Italian won’t be adding another final table to his excellent record so far this season. It was his fourth cash nevertheless.
