Huge Double Up for Lamb to Start

[user339872] • Nível 17: 0-0, 8,000 ante

After waiting for Sean Winter to show up, the second hand of the day was underway with four players limping in. The flop came {9-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} and the action checked around to the {k-Clubs} on the turn.

Stephen Chidwick was the first to throw in a bet of 55,000 from the cutoff. Brian Rast called on the button and Ben Lamb check-raised to 275,000. Winter folded and Chidwick thought for a minute before ripping all in. Rast quickly folded but Lamb instantly called off his stack of 1,183,000.

Ben Lamb: {10-Clubs}{8-Hearts}
Stephen Chidwick: {9-Clubs}{7-Clubs}

Lamb flopped the nuts with a straight and Chidwick had two pair and a flush draw. The {q-Diamonds} bricked the river and Chidwick was forced to send over a huge double up to start the day.

The next winner of a prestigious gold bracelet will be decided with a 36-card deck. Event #60: $10,000 Short Deck No-Limit Hold'em has reached its final day here at the World Series of Poker at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas; five players are left to battle for the $277,212 that sits waiting for first place.

Shota Nakanishi sits in prime position as the chip leader with 2,562,000 chips, nearly double the chips of his nearest contender. A short deck specialist with online experience in the game, Nakanishi demonstrated his prowess many times over the last couple of days. As one of two remaining players without a bracelet, he will look to close out the event today and take home his first piece of signature WSOP hardware. There are a few people who want to write a different story.

Stephen Chidwick (1,423,000) sits in second place. Chidwick ended play yesterday with a final big hand of the night when he flopped top two pair against the top pair of Scott Smile That hand finalized the final five and moved Chidwick into second place on the leaderboard. Chidwick will look to ride that momentum today.

Ben Lamb, Brian Rast, and Sean Winter round out the table. Lamb built a large stack early by making all the right moves, navigating tricky spots, and demonstrating a strong understanding of the game. Rast made a big, and correct, preflop call on Day 2 to eliminate two players and build a final table stack of his own. Winter, the other maiden-bracelet seeker and the short stack of the table, still has 55 antes to work with to take chips from those above him. Play will be deep and will likely feature very interesting play between these poker giants.
