David Benefield, Mark Newhouse First Elimination of WSOP Main Event Final 2013

Mark Newhouse was the first to say “good bye” and big name player David Benefield was quick to follow at this year’s World Series of Poker Main Event Final table.

Amir Lehavot started the hand on the button, and Mark Newhouse moved all in for 5.05 million from the hijack seat. Ryan Riess called in the cutoff, and the rest of the players folded.  That’s how it all went down.

But no need to shed any tears for Newhouse.  He’ll walk away with a sweet $733,224.

No crying for Benefield either as he leaves with $944,650.

The remaining players were each guaranteed $1.2 million and above.  They include famed poker pro JC Tran, Amir Lehavot, Marc-Etienne McLaughlin, Jay Farber, Ryan Riess, Sylvain Loosli and Michiel Brummelhuis.
