Matt Giannetti started the hand with the button.

Giannetti raised on the button to 2.6 million and Ben Lamb reraised all in from the big blind for 26.8 million. Giannetti called and everyone in the theatre jumped to their feet.

Giannetti: {J-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}
Lamb: {A-Hearts}{7-Hearts}

The flop came down {K-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} and Lamb picked up a flush draw. The crowd stayed standing as they awaited the turn and river.

The turn brought the {4-Hearts} and you could probably hear the roars from Lamb's cheering section down on Fremont Street as he nailed an unbeatable flush and would double up.

The river completed the board with the {9-Spades}.

Lamb doubled to 55 million while Giannetti was crushed down to under seven million.

Hand #171: Pius Heinz

• Nível 40: 600,000-1,200,000, 200,000 ante

Pius Heinz had the button. Matt Giannetti opened to 2.6 million under the gun. Next door, Heinz three-bet to 6.8 million, and that drew a longer-than-usual stare from Giannetti. It looked like he was thinking sinister thoughts, and he took long enough that both players not involved stepped away from the table. After a few minutes of sitting like a statue, Giannetti finally reached for chips and made the call.

The flop came an exciting {8-Clubs} {9-Clubs} {8-Hearts}. Giannetti checked, and Heinz fired into the pot with 7.3 million more. These bets are getting serious now, and Gianneti chose not to go any further, quickly surrendering his cards into the muck.
