Ben Lamb had the button to start this hand.

Martin Staszko raised all in for 21.525 million from the small blind after Pius Heinz raised to 2.1 million from under the gun. Heinz requested a count, got it and then called.

Heinz: {6-Spades}{6-Hearts}
Staszko: {A-Spades}{8-Clubs}

Staszko was on the ropes with his tournament life on the line holding two overs to Heinz's pair. The flop came down {8-Spades}{8-Hearts}{5-Spades} and Staszko picked up trip eights to take the lead.

The turn {4-Diamonds} gave Heinz a gutshot for some extra outs to eliminate Staszko with one more card to come.

The river completed the board with the {Q-Clubs} and Staszko successfully doubled up. Ben Lamb is now the short stack.
