After watching the table for 2 hands (I started watching well into the match) David Oppenheim sat down with $50k. It was interesting though when David Oppenheim sat down, Gus Hansen sat out, just watching the action… I don’t know if there is past history or it was just by coincidence that he sat out at the same time as Oppenheim playing at the poker table.

One of the larger hands at the table was between Patrik Antonius, David Benyamine and David Oppenheim. After the hole cards Patrik raised to $4k which was called by both David’s. The flop of [Kd Jh Ah] was dealt and Benyamine and Oppenheim checked while Patrik bet $2k which was called by Benyamine and then raised by Oppenheim. Both Patrik and Benaymine called thebet. The turn was a [8c] and Benaymine checked while Oppenheim bet $4k and at this time Patrik gave up and folded while Benyamine raised another $4k which was called. The river was another 8 this time of diamonds. Benyamine bet $4k which was called by Oppenheim, on the showdown David Benyamine shows 8s, kh for a full house and won the pot worth $47,999.
Well like clock work when Oppenheim ($16k) left the table Gus Hansen sat back in. It looks like Gus Hansen didn’t want to play against Oppenheim. Gus Hansen soon after sitting down won a large hand against Benyamine. David raised to $4k on the flop which was called by Gus. The flop of [Js Tc Kc] came down and Gus Hansen checked while Benyamine threw out $2k which was called. The turn of another king this time hearts came down and again Hansen checked Benaymine bet $4k which was then raised to $8k by Hansen. The river card was a 7 of clubs and Gus Hansen didn’t check this time, betting $4k. David Benyamine then doubled the bet to $8k which Gus Hansen decided to go another $4k to $12k which Benyamine called. Gus Hansen then showed a full house kings full of jacks and Benyamine mucked his hand.
At the end of watching about 50 hands the chip counts looked like:
- Patrik Antonius ($125,691.75)
- David Benyamine ($43,688.25)
- Gus Hansen ($114,694.50)
