After four days of action, French pro David Benyamine is among those vying to take down the $50,000 buy-in Event #55 at the WSOP, The Poker Players Championship.
Having enjoyed a return to form, Benyamine will goes into today’s finale with 2,709,000 chips, which places him just behind George Danzer on 2,868,000, UK player Matthew Ashton with 2,996,000 and leader Don Nguyen holding 5,068,000.With $1,774,089 on offer for first place, the final promises to be one of the highlights of the WSOP as some of the game’s best demonstrate their mixed-game prowess.Yesterday’s session was brought to a close when Mike Gorodinsky fell at the hands of Benyamine in pot-limit Omaha. Benyamine and Gorodinsky joined Danzer and Minh Ly on a 6h 4s Ts flop. After the Jd fell on the turn it was Benyamine who led the betting with Gorodinsky calling after Ly and Danzer folded. With all his chips now in the middle, Gorodinsky revealed Ad 9d 8c 7h for a flush and straight draw but Benyamine had the winning hand by showing Ac Td 6c 2d the Jc on the river.As the Frenchman scooped the final pot of the day, Gorodinsky headed for the rail to collect his $173,796 consolation prize, leaving just eight players still in the hunt for a WSOP bracelet.
