Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Lamb on Top of the WSOP Player-of-the-Year Leaderboard

• Level 23: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante

Ben Lamb's incredible run in 2011 continues to roll. Now that we're down to 137 players in the Main Event, Lamb is guaranteed at least 75 points in the 2011 World Series of Poker Player-of-the-Year Race, meaning he will finish the summer with a minimum of 734.05 points. That is especially significant since is vaults him in front of Phil Hellmuth (710.25 points) on top the POY Leaderboard.

Luckily for Hellmuth, the race will continue in October at the WSOP-Europe.
