EPT Copenhagen: Benelli downed

The Rasmus Nielsen show continues on the feature table, with the fearless Italian Andrea Benelli having his aces cracked. All the money went in on the flop -- it was 8♠-9♣-Q♦, and Benelli shoved, which Nielsen called.

Benelli had those aces, Nielsen was behind but had plenty of outs with his J♦-Q♠. They didn't have to wait very long until one of them hit: the T♣ on the turn filled the straight and suddenly Benelli was drawing only to a chop.

It didn't arrive and the Italian won't be adding another final table to his excellent record so far this season. It was his fourth cash nevertheless.
