Hand #175 - Tuan Lam

[user10554]
Hand #175 - Jerry Yang has the button, he limps for 600,000, and Tuan Lam checks. The flop comes {9-Spades}{8-Spades}{6-Diamonds}, and both players check. The turn card pairs the board with the {6-Spades}, and they check again. The river card is the {K-Hearts}, Lam checks, Yang bets 1 million, and Lam calls.

Yang shows 10-3 for ten high, but Lam shows {10-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} to win the pot with two pair, eights and sixes.
