Poker After Dark‘s “Big Three” opener featured three big games, plenty of big names, but only one big winner. Ben Lamb, one of the players credited for first bringing Short Deck to ARIA, dominated the game’s Poker After Dark debut and ended as an over $80,000 winner. While Lamb did pick up some sizable pots in Short Deck, including a three-way hand with quads, he also lapped the field in the No Limit Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha rounds.
Depa eventually made the right decision and released his flopped straight. Folding a strong hand is never easy against aggressive players like Ben Lamb, especially when he’s run over the table for the better part of the session.
Lamb will try to pick up where he left off during Wednesday’s “Big Three” finale. The same lineup, save for a Sam Soverel for Justin Ligeri swap, will return to Poker After Dark at 6 PM ET. Subscribe now to watch the Short Deck action live on PokerGO.
