High Stakes Donkery

Doing a little spectating tonight... watching the first 10 minutes or so of a $5,500+$100 heads-up match on FTP between David Benefield (SB) and "yo dont taze me" (BB). They were just kind of chipping away back and forth a little and then out of nowhere this mess happened:

Full Tilt Poker, $5,500 + $100 NL Hold'em Sit n' Go, 25/50 Blinds, 2 Players - Hand History Converter

SB: 1,575
BB: 1,425

Pre-Flop: (75)
SB raises to 125, BB raises to 1,425 and is All-In, SB calls 1,300
Flop: (2,850) 7c Qh Ks (2 Players - 1 is All-In)
Turn: (2,850) 2d (2 Players - 1 is All-In)
River: (2,850) 9s (2 Players - 1 is All-In)

Results: 2,850 Pot
SB showed Tc Ah (Ace King high) and LOST (-1,425 NET)
BB showed As 2s (a pair of Twos) and WON 2,850 (+1,425 NET)

Obviously the push is a bit ridiculous, but calling off your stack with ATo when you'd still have 25+ BB's to play with against an opponent who is most likely a lot worse than you and already seems to be showing that he'll pay you off when you really hit? Granted it was the correct call in this situation, but hey zeus that's quite a way to blow $5,600.

Also, somewhat interesting that has Benefield listed as a -15% ROI player with a loss of about $50k over 103 games. Yipes man... that hurts. But on the other hand, dude has to be amassing a ton of FTP points with all those $100 fees!
