Ronald Giles Eliminated by Griffin Benger in 41st Place ($174,186)

Ronald Giles

Ronald Giles raises to 275,000 on the button, and Griffin Benger three-bet shoves from the big blind. He has his opponent covered, and Giles calls all-in for 2,020,000 total, putting himself at risk.


Giles is a big favorite to double up, but he's unable to fade an unfavorable run-out. The flop is    , giving Benger top pair and a flush draw, and Giles is suddenly dead to two outs or running straight cards. He cannot catch up. The   turn and   river complete the board, and Giles is eliminated for his third cash of the summer.

Griffin Benger - 6,750,000 (56 bb)
Ronald Giles - Eliminated in 41st place ($174,186)
