Ben Vinson With a Sweat

We were just four places off the money when Ben Vinson must have been thinking not again! A few weeks ago Vinson was all-in, on the WPT Vienna money bubble, holding {A-} {K-} and he lost against the inferior ace of Benjamin Wilinofsky.

This time he was all-in against Team PokerStars Pro Max Martinez and once again it was a sweat with ace king.

Vinson{A-Clubs} {K-Spades}
Martinez{Q-Hearts} {J-Spades}

The flop was horrid for Vinson - {Q-Spades} {9-Spades} {2-Hearts} - and the turn {7-Hearts} not much better, but just when Vinson thought history would repeat itself the {A-Diamonds} on the river saved his skin.
