Ruberto Wins Massive Pot With Ace-High; Crosses 4 Million

• Level 23: 12,000-24,000, 4,000 ante
Tony Ruberto

Picking up the action on a {8-Spades}{9-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{K-Clubs} board, Griffin Benger led out for 198,000 from the small blind and Tony Ruberto raised to 475,000 from the button. Benger paused for a minute before sliding in a raise to 900,000 total. Ruberto called, making the pot worth more than 2.1 million.

The {4-Hearts} completed the board and both players wasted little time before checking. Benger tabled {J-Hearts}{10-Clubs} for a busted draw, and Ruberto showed {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs} for ace-high. That was good enough to scoop a massive pot and climb to second in chips.
