Brandon Hamlet min-raised under the gun to 50,000, Christian Roberts moved all in from the cutoff for 150,000, and Hamlet called with 6s6h.

Roberts turned over AsJd, and needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came Jh6d2h5s8c, and Roberts paired his jack on the flop, only to see Hamlet flop a set of sixes. Hamlet’s set held up to win the pot and eliminate Roberts in sixth place.

Brandon Hamlet  –  2,800,000  (112 bb)
Christian Roberts  –  Eliminated in 6th Place  ($20,500)
