Brown won a 10M chip pot early on and never looked back.
Ben Brown came into today's final table with 3.62M chips. He chipped his way up to around 5M pretty early in the day.
Then he found himself in a monster of a pot against Chris Tryba. Brown's kings were ahead of Tryba's queens when the two got 10M chips in the middle before the flop.
The board ran clean and Brown won the pot, raking in nearly half the chips in play. He never looked back.
