The conventional use of two-body B decays to extract $\gamma$, although theoretically clean, is currently statistics-limited. On the other hand, a bulk of data on three-body B decays is available from $B$ factories. Applying the flavor-SU(3)-symmetric approach proposed in Ref.\ \cite{ReyLeLorier:2011ww} to \babar data, we find the highly promising result $\gamma = (81^{+4}_{-5} ({\rm avg.}) \pm 5 ({\rm std.\ dev.}))^\circ$. This establishes the use of three-body B decays as a viable alternative…
