David Stamm has the enviable task of stacking piles of chips after doubling up through Sam Soverel to take the chip lead. 

Sam Soverel gained the chip lead at the High Roller final table through his aggression but that style of play worked against him versus David Stamm, who caught the perfect card at the perfect time to double through Soverel.

Stamm opened to 65,000 under the gun and Soverel called in the big blind. Soverel checked the J10♣8♣ flop and Stamm bet 75,000. Soverel raised to 215,000 and Stamm called after some thought.

The K♣ came on the turn and Soverel moved all-in for 803,000 effective. Stamm removed his headphones to confirm the bet and called with A♣3♣ for the nut flush. Soverel showed Q♣8 and was drawing dead heading to the river.

Once the dust settled, Stamm stacked up to about 2,225,000 with Soverel now in second with 1,670,000.
