Benjamin Moon wins WSOP Event #13
Posted On 10 Jun, 2018 0
Coming back on Friday with only six players from the traditional nine-handed WSOP final table, it was expected that the day might be quick. It wasn’t expected to be four hours quick, however, as chip leader Benjamin Moon stayed on the gas to take the gold.
Moon’s lead wasn’t a huge one, though. He only held a 100K chip edge over Colin Robinson’s 2.66 million stack, with the remainder of the field spread behind them. It took about 20 hands of action before Robinson eliminated Bohdan Slyvinskyi (who came in with the short stack), his Queen kicker (A-Q) playing over Slyvinskyi’s seven kicker (A-7) on a A-6-10-8-5 board. As Slyvinskyi headed to the cage, the remaining players went to Level 30, where the tournament was determined.
Moon dominated the final table, taking out Nhathanh Nguyen, Steven Snyder and Robinson in fifth through third places, respectively, to reach heads up against Romain Lewis with more than a 3:1 lead (7.7 million to 2.1 million). Ten hands later, it was all over after Moon, who raised off the button with an A-J, called the all-in three-bet from Lewis’ A-2 and watched the board run out nine high to bring him his first WSOP title.
