Lamb Flops A Monster, Busts Another

When we walked over to Ben Lamb's table, we noticed that he was in the middle of a big pot preflop. Ismail Erkenov got the rest of his 111,000 in preflop, and found a call from Lamb and Niall Charlton.

The three players saw a flop of {10-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}, and Lamb and Charlton checked. The turn brought the {5-Hearts}, and Lamb decided it was time to bet, as he put out 150,000. Charlton quickly folded, and the cards were shown.

Lamb: {a-Spades}{j-Diamonds}
Erkenov: {j-Clubs}{j-Hearts}

Erkenov had Lamb dominated preflop, but Lamb flopped nearly perfectly, hitting his ace and picking up a flush draw. Erkenov would need the last jack in the deck to survive, and he wouldn't get it, as the river came the {9-Spades}. Lamb collected the pot, upping his stack back up to 2.3 million.
