Lance's theorem asserts that a discrete group $G$ is amenable if and only if the reduced and full groups C*-algebras coincide. The group von Neumann algebra is the weak closure of the reduced group C*-algebra concretely represented on $\ell_2(G)$. The definition of the full group C*-algebra is abstract as we range through all possible repsresntations of the algebraic group algebra so we can't mimick the definition of the group von Neumann algebra in this case.
Does the full group C*-algebra canonically embed into some finite von Neumann algebra like the reduced group C*-algebra does?
If so, what is the relation (if any) to the group von Neumann algebra of $G$?
