Event #65: $10,000 Main Event

Another Double for Lamphere

• Level 26: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Michigan's Adam Lamphere, who is being supported on the rail by his friend and Mid-States Poker Tour FireKeeper's champion Jason Zarlenga, began the day as the third shortest stack, but thanks to two doubles he's put himself right back into contention.

In his latest double, action folded to Lamphere on the button and he raised to 580,000, leaving himself a single green T25,000 chip behind. Tony Ruberto called from the big blind and then bet 25,000 dark upon realizing Lamphere had the chip behind. Lamphere called it off.

Lamphere: {k-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}
Ruberto: {k-Spades}{7-Hearts}

Lamphere was well out in front thanks to his kicker, and he actually managed to hit two pair on the {k-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} flop. The {6-Diamonds} turn left Ruberto drawing dead, and Lamphere was shipped the double after the {J-Spades} was put out on the river.

Chip Counts
Tony Ruberto us 2,600,000 -645,000
Adam Lamphere us 1,286,000 566,000
