Jyri Merivirta Busts In A Massive Pot

Roland Israelashvili:     /      /  
David Benyamine:     /      /  
Jyri Merivirta:     /      /  
George Danzer:     /      /  
Mike Leah:     /     (folds)

Action starts with a five-way capped pot of five bets each, with Benyamine and Merivirta being the primary aggressors.

On fourth street, Benyamine has the lead with his ace-high, and he checks. Merivirta bets, Danzer calls, Leah calls, Israelashvili calls, Benyamine makes it two bets, Merivirta calls all in for 23,000 total, and the other players call as well.

Mike Leah makes an open pair of nines on fifth street, bringing the action to him first. Leah checks, Israelashvili bets, Benyamine raises, and Danzer calls. Leah thinks for a while, then folds. Israelashvili shoves all in for 18,000 more, Benyamine puts in another big bet, making it 42,000 extra for Danzer to call. The German pro calls, creating a second side-pot with Benyamine.

The action is on Merivirta's three open fives on sixth street, but with him being all in, Danzer is first to act. He bets, and Benyamine calls. On seventh street, Danzer bets once again, and Benyamine calls.

All players open their cards at showdown, creating the following hands:

Roland Israelashvili:     /      (ace-king high, 6-4-3-2-A low)
David Benyamine:         (aces-up high, no low)
Jyri Merivirta:     /      (three fives high, no low)
George Danzer:         (seven-high straight, 7-6-5-4-3 low)

Danzer wins the high half of all the pots, and the full second side-pot, with his seven-high straight. Israelashvili claims the low half with his six-four low. Merivirta is eliminated from the tournament in 16th place.

George Danzer - 740,000 (31 BB)
David Benyamine - 430,000 (18 BB)
Roland Israelashvili - 315,000 (13 BB)
Mike Leah - 175,000 (7 BB)
Jyri Merivirta - Eliminated in 16th place ($16,981)
