David Benyamine Takes $1.2m at PLO.

Monday, 10 August 2009

Former Full Tilt red pro David Benyamine, now playing as MR B 2 U SON at the nosebleed games, returned a massive winner at the $300/$600 PLO tables this week. Benyamine was one of the most successful and often-sighted regulars at the high stakes tables on Full Tilt before a large downswing saw him drop out.

Well, he’s back and he has the seven-figure profits to prove it. On Friday he played a huge session of PLO – his game of choice – and absolutely ran over the table. Not only was he playing exceptionally, but he never failed to catch a card. This lead to a total profit of $1.18m.

One hand saw Ivey, Benyamine and Urindanger take a Tc-9s-3s flop. Benyamine check-called Dang’s bet as Ivey got out of the way before check-raising the Ah on the turn.

The two got it in for a quarter-million dollar pot: Benyamine held 996A for middle set and Urindanger flipped AQJT double-suited for the third-nut flush draw and top two pair. The river came another 3 to ship Benyamine $247,750 with a full house.
