Ben Lamb opened the action with a button raise to 400,000 and Jason Mercier three-bet the pot to 1,350,000 in the small blind. After some consideration, Lamb called as he studied the remaining stack of Mercier and they headed to the flop.
The shove by Mercier for around 1,300,000 followed and Lamb snap-called.
Lamb had a pair to go with his flush draw and the turn provided the flush, while Mercier had improved to a set o kings. The board didn't pair anymore as a blank followed to eliminate Mercier in 6th place for a payday of $260,819.
All five remaining players now bag and tag their chips, all counts and a recap of today's action are to follow.
