RG DownStream Main Event (Day 2): Roger Bennett Eliminated 2nd ($19,604)

Level 23 (15,000/30,000/5,000)
Total Entrants: 293
Players Remaining: 1
Chip Average: 5,860,000

Heads up play between Michael Beaty and Roger Bennett (pictured) only lasted for 10 hands as Beaty managed to get the better of yet another opponent to seal his win. 

Bennett raised preflop on the button and Beaty called to see a K♠96 flop. Both players checked and Beaty checked the 10♠ turn. Bennett bet 100,000 and Beaty raised to 250,000. Beaty pushed all-in for 975,000 total and Beaty called with top set K♣K.

Bennett had a monster draw 9♠8♠ but missed on the 3 river to finish in second place.  

Bennett earns the largest score of his poker career and a seat onboard the RG Cruise come May. Beaty ships the title in a wire-to-wire final table performance. A winner's recap will be posted shortly.
