Johnny Lam Was Just Eliminated by Kathleen Long

Moments after spiking a straight on the river to stack an unlucky opponent, the boisterous Kathleen Long has done it again.

This time, Johnny Lam was victimized by Long's sudden heater, after the two players got the chips on the middle on a {8-Spades}{10-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} flop.


Long: {K-Clubs}{9-Clubs}
Lam: {10-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}

Lam had the best of it with his pair of tens, and Long was once again behind in a huge pot, needing a nine or a king to take the lead.

Turn: {k-Hearts}

Just like that, Long had turned coal into a diamond, and when the river ({j-Diamonds}) failed to change things, Lam's tournament had suddenly come to an end. Long continued to climb up the leaderboard, thanks to a pair of fortuitous cards arriving exactly when she needed them.
