We just saw a pot that had about 25% of the chips in play on the line, and saw Griffin Benger eliminated in absolutely brutal fashion. Richard Dubini raised it to 44,000 from under the gun, and it folded around to Peter Hengsakul. As he has done several times today, he over bet the pot, moving all in for 1.2 million. It folded around to Griffin Benger in the big blind, and he announced call! Dubini quickly folded, and the cards were tabled.
Benger was in prime position to take a massive chip lead in the tournament, and the flop was safe for him, coming . The came on the turn, and Benger was still out in front. Well, you can probably guess what happened on the river.
Benger understandably yelled in agony at the site of the card, saying "no F***!" He looked up at the ceiling in absolute shock as the 5% shot came through on the river. The stacks were counted down, and Hengsakul had Benger covered by 100,000, ending his day in unbelievable fashion.
After winning that hand, Hengsakul is now the commanding chip leader with 2.4 million.
