Benyamine raids the marmelade pot

David Benyamine
Benyamine: Sticky-fingered.

Everyone's favorite lovable lug David Benyamine added to his already robust month by booking a $243,000 win today at $200/$400 PLO at Full Tilt Poker.

Most of the action was up against the relatively unknown (but presumably huge Christina Ag/Lil' Kim/Pink fan) lady marmelade. All speculation aside as to who would choose such a flamboyant name, lady marmelade is down a reported $1 million in the previous 30 days.

The big hand set up this way:

Full Tilt Poker Game #6318457735 Table: Pantheon (six-max) $200/$400 - Pot-Limit Omaha Hi - 1:50am ET - 2008/05/07

Seat 1: David Benyamine ($47,637.50)

Seat 2: trex313 ($54,718.50)

Seat 3: lady marmelade ($41,440)

On this $83,278 pot table, Benyamine limps the button with T T 7 2. trex313 completes in the small blind. lady marmelade checks her option.

The flop comes T J 6.

trex checks and lady marmelade bets $1,200. Benyamine then pops it to $4,800 from the button. lady marmelade flat-calls the flop raise. They see the turn heads-up.

Turn: 9

lady checks and Benyamine checks behind.

River: T

lady marmelade bets $10,800; Benyamine then shoves for $42,437 with his rivered quad tens.

lady marmelade makes the call and the $83,278 pot is shipped to Benyamine.

This is just one of the eight ~$30,000+ pots the two played together, with Benyamine getting the better of the bulk of their encounters. With the majority of the action going on at the Omaha tables these days, you can bet this won't be the last time these two bump heads.
