Event 5: Doubles All Around

$250 No Limit Hold’em Black Chip Bounty
Blinds: 3k/6k/1k ante

All three players pushed chips around the table in a series of big hands. Each took their time atop the leaderboard with a significant double up but we almost had a winner in one huge hand.

Steven Bennett opened the action to 24,000 on the button and Richard Kessler called in the small blind. Man Le responded with a three-bet to 40,000 from the small blind and Bennett called the bet. Kessler went from a caller to a raiser when he shoved all-in for less than 100,000 which prompted Le to moved all-in over the top.

Bennett was conflicted and finally folded 5c5s face up then cursed his play when Kessler showed As3c and Le Ad2c. Le hit the Qc9s2s flop but Kessler came from behind with the 3h turn. Kessler doubled once again on the 8s river to get back in it.

They decided on an impromptu 10-minute break and will return shortly.

Steven Bennett – 403,000
Richard Kessler – 257,000
Man Le – 114,000
