The 2011 WSOP Main Event final table is still running and still a world champion hasn't been crowned. The 3 players who returned to the final table 7 hours ago were Pius Heinz, from Germany, with 107 million chips. In second place is Ben Lamb, from USA, with 55 million chips, and in third place is Martin Staszko, from Czech Republic, with 42 million chips.
Many hoped for Ben Lamb to take home the win or at least make it to heads-up, but unfortunately he was knocked out in 3rd place. In the very first hand, Martin Staszk doubled up through Lamb, and this is how the hand was played out.
Pius Heinz had the button and Ben Lamb raised to 3 million from the small blind after Heinz folded the button. Martin Staszko reraised from the big blind to 7,5 million. Lamb thought for a while and then decided to move all in. Stazko called.
The flop came 932
TURN and RIVER came out 310 and Staszko moved to 85,6 million while Lamb dropped to 12,7 million.
After this it didn't take long until Ben Lamb was all in once again against Staszko.
Pius Heinz had the button and folded. Lamb raised all in for 10.9 million. Martin Staszko
looked down at JJ and quickly called. Lamb held the Q6.
FLOP came out 552
The turn brought the 2 and there was two pair on the board. Only a queen could save Lamb from being eliminated. But the river card 7 came and Ben Lamb was knocked out. Lamb earned amazing $4,021,138 for his 3rd place finish, but he looked quite disappointed when he left the tournament room.
Here are the chip counts for the remaining players:
Pius Heinz 164,200,000
Martin Staszko 41,700,000
