Steve Lamphear Eliminated in 5th Place ($11,048)

Chad_Holloway • Level 22: 15,000-25,000, 25,000 ante
Steve Lamphear

Steve Lamphear moved all in for 375,000 from the cutoff and Blair Hinkle called from the button. Both blinds folded and it was off to the races.

Steve Lamphear: {a-Spades}{q-Hearts}
Blair Hinkle: {j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}

"I was hoping you'd have jacks or tens," Lamphear said. Indeed, he was in a flip situation but he needed to improve to stay alive.

Unfortunately for him, that proved easier said than done as the board ran out {4-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{j-Clubs} to improve Hinkle to top set.
