On the Lam


Robert Lam had about 120,000 chips left when he stuck them all in with {A-Clubs} {10-Diamonds}. That turned out to be a very bad thing indeed when big stack Matthew Turk put him to the test with the dominating {A-Spades} {Q-Spades}.

The {3-Diamonds} {2-Spades} {7-Diamonds} flop didn't change much, and Lam was looking for some help. "Diamonds are good," he wished aloud.

The turn was the {4-Hearts}, though, and Lam added, "Or a five," to his list of outs. The river brought the blank {2-Clubs}, though, and he's been unable to get over the hump. Lam's fallen out here in 39th place, and the AU$ 25,000 he'll pocket should be some consolation.

Turk is battling back and forth for the chip lead, chipping his way up further to about 1.225 million.
