Huey Lam now has a Stacked Poker Championship title to his name after taking down the $550 NLH Monster Stack on Monday night.
Outlasting a field that began with 73 entries and culminated in a roller-coaster of a final table, Lam managed to stay out of trouble while others fell around him – eventually emerging as one of two clear chip leaders alongside Mike Gainer midway through the final table. After sending Gainer packing in third, Lam eventually dispatched of Neb Blanusa after a heads-up battle that lasted around 30 minutes.
In the final hand, Lam opened to 200,000 on the button and Blanusa shoves for his last 450,000 from the blinds. Lam made the call and showed 8♠10♠ – needing a little help against Blanusa’s Q♣4♣.
The 5♠K♠6♣ flop gave Lam a heap of outs to the win and the 7♠ turn sealed the deal before the meaningless 3♣ landed on the river.
Lam scores $10,700 for his efforts, while special mention goes to Stacked Social’s Managing Director Andrew Michael and local regular Nick Williams for making it two final tables from two events so far this week.
