More Accolades For Pros At The World Series Of Poker
By Staff
Although victories are lacking in the ever-more-crapshoot-esque No Limit Hold ‘em events, professional players are winning events left, right and centre, proving that they can still proudly call themselves champions.

David Benyamine, a French player frequently seen playing the highest online stakes as well as appearing regularly on GSN’s High Stakes Poker, won his first World Series of Poker bracelet in the $10,000 World Championship Omaha Hi-Low Split 8-or-Better event, beating a field of 234 others to win over $500k. Greg Jamison re-raised all-in preflop with QhKh6d2s and Benyamine held TcThQc3h. The board ran out as: 9sJsTd, giving Jamison the nut straight and Benyamine a set with no low hand possible. The Jh hit the turn to give Benyamine tens full and lock up the hand, a bracelet, and $535,687.

Meanwhile, Chris ‘Jesus’ Ferguson, so-called for his long hair and beard (although biblical historians dispute whether or not the Lord played poker and wore a cowboy hat) came second in the $10,000 World Championship Seven-Card Stud Hi-Low Split 8-or-Better. The $202,406 pushed his total tournament earnings past $5.5m, but he will be disappointed that he was just inches away from his sixth bracelet.
