Super High Roller

Three is Good

• Level 1: 500-1,000, 100 ante

Shawn Buchanan opened to 2,000 from under the gun, Yevgeniy Timoshenko called on the button, and David Benefield defended the big blind. The flop fell {j-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}, and the action checked to Timoshenko who fired 3,500. Only Benefield called.

Both Benefield and Timoshenko knuckled after the turn ({3-Spades}), and the river ({5-Spades}).

"I've got a three," Benefield said, turning over {a-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}.

Timoshenko sweated his cards one last time before releasing them, and Benefield pulled in the pot.
