Elpayaa Gets It Back and Busts Lamb

[user68268]

From under the gun, Ben Lamb raised to 1,700. In the cutoff seat, Joseph Elpayaa flat-called the raise before everyone else folded. The flop came down {J-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} and Lamb fired 2,000. Elpayaa raised to 4,700 and Lamb came back with a reraise to 9,400 after first trying to reraise smaller and having the rule explained to him that he must double the amount of the total bet he's facing. Elpayaa moved all in and Lamb quickly called for less.

Lamb was all in for right around 25,000 with the {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}. Elpayaa had him pipped with the {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}.

"Definitely thought I was going to be ahead," said Lamb with the cards on their backs.

The turn brought the {A-Hearts} to leave Lamb drawing dead. The river completed the board with the {Q-Clubs}.
