Event #65: $10,000 Main Event

Lamphere Goes to Broadway

• Level 25: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

Adam Lamphere began the day as the third shortest stack, and it didn't take him long to get it in. The Michigan man moved all in from middle position and Luis Assuncao shoved all in over the top from the small blind, which inspired Zachary Walker to fold from the big.

Lamphere: {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}
Assuncao: {q-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}

It was the most classic of races, but Lamphere needed to improve to keep his 2014 WSOP Main Event hopes alive. He didn't do it on the {j-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{2-Spades} flop, and the {Q-Spades} turn actually improved Assuncao to trips. That meant Lamphere needed a ten and a ten only to survive, and wouldn't you know it, the {10-Hearts} spiked on the river to give him Broadway!
