If you haven't already heard, PokerTracker served as the sponsor of Ben Lamb, who is known worldwide by his online handle "Benba" and finished third in the World Series of Poker Main Event earlier this week. Lamb capped off an amazing run that ended in the Las Vegas resident cashing for just over $4,000,000.

Lamb wore a Poker Tracker logo throughout his November Nine final table appearance abd had a remarkable run at this year's WSOP with four final tables, including an outright victory in the $10,000 buy-in Pot Limit Omaha World Championship event for over $814,000.

His other significant 2011 WSOP cashes include a runner-up performance in a $3,000 buy-in Pot Limit Omaha tournament for nearly $260,000 along with an eighth place showing in the $50,000 buy-in Poker Player’s Championship for another $201,000. His outstanding results prompted WSOP officials to name him the 2011 Player of the Year.

Lamb's online statistics are also impressive. He has well over $1,000,000 in career cashes, highlighted by his 2009 FTOPS victory in a $240 buy-in No Limit Hold’em Knockout event for $146,300.

Lamb's WSOP Main Event run ended Tuesday, November 8th when he lost a key all-in pre-flop coin flip when his K-J failed to improve against Martin Staszko's pocket sevens. The showdown result placed Lamb at a severe disadvantage three-handed and he busted out a few hands later. In spite of the outcome, Lamb was in high spirits and made a trip to Stoney's Las Vegas to celebrate his accomplishment. caught up with PokerTracker representative Steven McLoughlin, who had a lot of positive things to say about Lamb's achievement and the usefulness of premier software applications such as PokerTracker: "Ben is one of PokerTracker's alpha testers. He can no longer play online, but he continues to use our software to guide the futures of other players, as well as post-game analysis for himself."

For those who are unaware of the benefits of using poker tracking programs like PokerTracker, whose fourth incarnation is in the works, the application stores all of your hand histories and records an astonishing number of details ranging from opponent tendencies to in-depth breakdowns of a player’s weaknesses at the online tables.

Simply put, an online poker player who is not using PokerTracker will find himself at a severe disadvantage against players who are using all available information to improve their bottom lines and make the most appropriate decisions in-game.

It is easy to see why Lamb, despite being unable to play online poker since he lives in the United States, continues to use PokerTracker in his private lessons with up-and-coming players. The information obtained from PokerTracker can go a long way towards improving a player's game and taking someone from the beginning level all the way to the top.

On behalf of the entire staff at, congratulations to WSOP Main Event third place finisher Ben Lamb and congratulations to PokerTracker for sponsoring an all-out professional both on and away from the tables.

Just tell her how you feel, bud.What have you got to lose at this point?If you say that her boyfriend doesn't treat her well, then there's a rllaey good chance she's reminiscing of her relationship with you.The way her boyfriend is treating her makes her want to be with you more than she wants to be with him. At least, that's how I would feel, if my girlfriend treated me worse than my ex girlfriend :/Just go for it bro. Tell her straight up how you feel.Nothing you can lose at this point.

As usual, I enjoyed your post. My fiavrote line: I was forced into the role of cockroaching short stack, just looking to sneak into the money. Congratulations on cashing in the $1,000 event! No doubt more final tables are in your future, it's just a matter of time.
