Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Nothing Meek About Lamb

Shamus • Level 31: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante

Tense moments on the outer table just now, and Ben Lamb, sitting in Seat 5, was right in the middle of it.

Lamb opened for 350,000 from middle position, and Eoghan O'Dea reraised to 800,000 from the button. Lamb called. The flop came {J-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{A-Hearts}. Lamb checked, O'Dea bet 800,000 again, and Lamb called. The turn was the {10-Spades}. Again Lamb check-called O'Dea's bet, this time for 1.7 million.

The river then brought the {Q-Spades} and an alteration to the established sequence. Lamb studied for some time, then carefully pushed out two huge 40-chip high towers of greens, topped by several lavenders and a few more greens -- a (literally) towering bet of 2.7 million.

O'Dea went into the tank, watching Lamb as he looked down and away, riffling his chips. Finally, after at least three minutes, O'Dea folded.

Lamb is up around 14 million now, while O'Dea has 9.6 million.
