Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Hand #179: Staszko Doubles Through Lamb On First Hand

[user68268] • Level 40: 600,000-1,200,000, 200,000 ante

Pius Heinz had the button to start this hand and the second day of action of the 2011 World Series of Poker Main Event final table.

Ben Lamb raised to three million from the small blind after Heinz folded the button. Martin Staszko reraised from the big blind to 7.5 million. Lamb took some time to think things over and then reraised all in. Staszko called!

Lamb: {K-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}
Staszko: {7-Spades}{7-Clubs}

As you can see, the first hand was a real banger as Staszko and Lamb decided to flip for the lot of it! Staszko was ahead, but in no way could he be feeling comfortable.

The flop came down {9-Spades}{3-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} and Lamb whiffed so far. His some 300-strong fans stood with their jaws wide open waiting to see what would happen on the turn or river.

The turn brought the {3-Spades} to pair the board and Lamb needed the river now.

The river card was the {10-Clubs} and just like that, Staszko moved to 85.6 million while Lamb dropped to 12.7 million. What a way to start the final three-handed action!
