Kaarstad Kicks Benchea to the Rail

Petter Kaarstad

Petter Kaarstad opened to 2,000 from under the gun and Adam Martinsson called on his left. Next to act was Alexandru Benchea who made it 12,000 to go. The action folded back to Kaarstad who shipped all in and Martinsson quickly folded. Benchea thought for a minute but eventually called off his stack of around 37,000.

Kaarstad was in a dominating position and the flop of :::9s:::4d:::3c didn’t change anything. The :::8d on the turn left Benchea with just three outs and the :::as on the river was not one of them.
