Over on the outer table, Fabian Brandes raised from under the gun and Sam Stein called. Ben Lamb then three-bet the pot out of the small blind and Brandes went over the top for Stein to get out of the way. Lamb committed his stack of around 1.2 million and they flipped them over.
Brandes was well ahead with the double-suited aces and had little to fear on the flop and turn, which left Lamb on very thin ice. Nothing changed on the river except that Brandes now made an eight-high straight and Lamb was eliminated in 15th place for $67,313.
