We caught up to Ben Lamb on a board of {8-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}. There, Lamb put out a bet of 2,200. Almost instantly, the only other player in the hand put out a bet of 11,000. Lamb leaned over the table, wide eyed, and studied his opponent and his chip stack. After a few seconds, the player picked up his phone and began texting.

"Sir, you can't do that when you're in a hand," the dealer warned the player. Quickly he put his phone down, face down on the edge of the table.

"Yeah you're hand's dead buddy," Lamb joked to him. "I think that's the actual rule. But I won't call it on you."

Eventually, after a few more seconds Lamb ended up folding his hand. "Now would be a good time to show a bluff," someone at the table told the pot winner, but he didn't oblige. Even after losing that small pot, Lamb is getting off to a great start here in the 2013 Main Event as he is close to double his starting stack already.
