Ben Lamb - 4th Place

Hand #182:

Pius Heinz had the button.

After Heinz folded, Ben lamb raised all in for 10.9 million. Martin Staszko woke up with the {J-Diamonds}{J-Clubs} and made the call. Lamb held the {Q-Spades}{6-Hearts}.

The flop came down {5-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{2-Spades} and Lamb whiffed so far. He was still looking for a queen or running straight cards to win the hand and double up.

The turn brought the {2-Clubs} and there was now two pair on board, but none of that mattered to Lamb. He needed just a queen on the river. All of Lamb's fans stood waiting for the river, but none of them looked or sounded confident at all that Lamb was going to survive this hand.

The river brought the {7-Spades} and that wasn't the lady that Lamb needed to save the day. He was eliminated by the man who doubled through him on the first hand, Staszko, and just two players remained.

For his finish, Lamb earned $4,021,138.
