Lamb's Story is a Page Turner

Ben Lamb was under the gun and raised to 225,000. Action folded around to James Page on the button and he moved all in for 2.285 million. The blind got out of the way and Lamb nonchalantly called.

Lamb: {9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}
Page: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}

It was a classic race with Page at risk and needing to improve. The ESPN cameras swarmed the table and gave the go ahead for the dealer to put out the flop, which came down {7-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}. Page sat quiet and stoic as he awaited his fate. The {7-Hearts} turn brought him one step closer to elimination, but it was the {K-Diamonds} on the river that sent him to the payout desk in 40th place.
