Life for Lamb

Level 21


Minh Ly raised from the hijack seat, then a short-stacked Ben Lamb reraised from the cutoff. It folded back around and Ly called.

The flop came {9-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{8-Spades}. Ly checked, Lamb bet, and Ly called. The turn was the {6-Spades}, and Ly checked again. Lamb bet the last 13,000 he had, and Ly called.

Ly: {A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{3-Spades}
Lamb: {A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{2-Hearts}

Lamb was all in and at risk, but the river brought the {5-Spades}, giving him both the nut flush and the nut low.

"No more slowrolls," said Lamb afterwards, alluding to his earlier hand with Ly. Lamb is still alive with about 550,000, while Ly has about 3.5 million.
