Ben Lamb was the first to go of the three remaining poker players at this year’s World Series of Poker final.  Play resumed Tuesday with three remaining players.  Six of the finalists were eliminated on Sunday.

Lamb is widely considered the most likely candidate to receive “Poker Player of the Year” honors.  He was already named the “WSOP Player of the Year” for 2011. 

Pius Heinz of Germany and Martin Staszko were vying for the $8.72 million grand prize.

The 26-year-old Lamb won $4 million for finishing in third place. The hands pushed Staszko to a chip lead over Heinz.
