Event 37 - Final Table - Benyamine's Bracelet!!
Yes, finally, what seemed the inevitable result once the players were reduced to four handed has come to fruition.
The talented Frenchman David Benyamine has become the latest big name pro to take down a bracelet, his first victory at the WSOP.
Here's how he won.
Divine David (Ba)-Gets The Bracelet!!
Benyamine entered the heads up with a 3 to 1 chip advantage and with his aggressive style, he relentlessly ground his opponent, Greg Jamison down until Jamison was being set all-in every hand.
It would have taken a miracle for Jamison to recover at this point, but he made a good fist of winning his all-ins, surviving four or five times, before Benyamine finally hammered the last nail into his coffin.
Holding T♣ T♥ Q♣ 3♥, Benyamine set Jamison all-in and he called with Q♥ K♥ 6♦ 2♠ for his tournament life.
The flop was an astounding J♦ T♠ 9♠, giving Jamison the nut straight but Benyamine a set. Needing to boat up to take it down, David did just that, hitting a J♥ on the turn to leave Jamison drawing dead on the 3♦ river.
Benyamine held his arms aloft, a big smile breaking out across the Frenchman's face as he secured his first bracelet and soaked up the wild applause of the delighted rail.
Greg Jamison picked up $331,350 for his efforts, falling just short of the bracelet, but David Benyamin is the $10,000 Omaha/8 World Championship Champion, collecting $535,687 for this win and of course adding himself to the select roster of WSOP bracelet winners!
