Benny Chen Made Millionaire – Event #9 Reaches FT

Benny Chen wins Event #6Another bracelet at the World Series Of Poker has just been handed out after Benny Chen has just scooped the title in the $1.5k ‘Millionaire Maker’ on Day 4. The originally scheduled three day event had to see the final table of ten come back again today to finish off business.

The event had originally seen an attendance of 6,343 players but today there was just one of them left in Benny Chen after he beat a final table that included Justin Liberto, Chris Hunichen, Dan Kelly and Upeshka Desilva to win the bracelet and $1,198,780.

He had to defeat Michael Bennington heads up after going into that session with a three to one chip lead. He did this within just eight hands when after a series of bets the chips were all in the middle pre-flop. Bennington flipped over pocket threes whilst Chen the pocket nines meaning he was already well ahead before the flop. This didn’t change either as the board fell as the Kc-8d-2h-Jc-Ac, which meant he was the latest WSOP bracelet winner.

WSOP Event #9 Day 2 In The Bag – Final Ten Set

We also saw the remaining 60 players come back for Day 2 in the $3k NLHE Shootout, in which each player had to then go and do what they did on Day 1 and win a table of ten players. The event started with 477 players in total but they were reduced to the 60 winners of each table on Day 1, meaning they have to win one more table to make the final one.

Amongst those players are Chris Klodnicki, David Baker and Max Steinerg, who are probably the most notable names on the final table.
