Lamb The Chip Leader...Again

Ben Lamb

It seems like every few hours for this entire main event, we have reported on Ben Lamb winning a big pot to take the chip lead. Well here is your standard big pot for Ben Lamb post. With about 110,000 in the middle, Lamb and his opponent, Stewart Kaplan, saw a flop heads up of {3-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}. We didn't get to the table until after the action, but according to Lamb after the hand, Kaplan open shipped 500,000 into Lamb, who made the call with a monster hand, {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds}. Kaplan held just {5-Hearts}{5-Clubs}, and he would need to get lucky to survive.

The turn came the {8-Spades}, which meant no help for Kaplan, and the river brought the {j-Diamonds}. Lamb gladly took the chips, and upped his stack to a tournament leading 3.85 million.
