Event #46: $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em / Six Handed Championship

Marafioti Flushed Away


Three players saw a flop of {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}, including Matt Marafioti, Thorsten Schafer, and Ben "Benba" Lamb. The action checked the Lamb who bet 13,000, and both Marafioti and Schafer called. The turn was another heart - the {8-Hearts} - and Marafioti moved all in for 60,000. Schafer folded, and Lamb called.

Marafioti: {q-Hearts}{j-Hearts}
Lamb: {a-Hearts}{6-Hearts}

With a pair of aces and a superior flush draw, Lamb had a vice-grip on the hand. The {5-Hearts} on the river completed said flush, just for fun, and Marafioti was eliminated from the tournament.

Lamb is now nearing 700,000 chips.
