Michael Bennett Eliminated in 2nd Place ($51,581)

Congratulations to Michael Bennett from Phoenix, AZ who finished 2nd in our DeepStack Championship Event #52 $1,100 NLH DoubleStack $250K GTD winning $51,581.

Manuel Ruivo raised from the button and was called by Bennett in the big blind before the flop came 3♠ 5♦ T♦.

Bennett check-called a continuation bet from Ruivo before the turn brought the 4♥. Bennett checked. Ruivo fired another bet. Bennett called.

The J♣ completed the board and Bennett moved all in for 2,300,000.

“It should be a snap call,” said Ruivo, who replayed the hand back to himself.

“You check-call, check-call, then shove,” he added.

“I’m probably calling,” he finished with, before taking a second longer, and called.

Bennett tapped the table and revealed his 9♠ 3♥ for a pair of threes. Ruivo confidently turned over his K♦ K♥ for a higher pair and was awarded the victory.
