Lamphere Forces Talbot Out

• Level 9: 600-1,200, 1,200 ante

Adam Lamphere opened to 3,700 from the cutoff and Parker Talbot called out of the small blind. The flop fell {9-Spades}{4-Hearts}{2-Spades} and Talbot checked to Lamphere who continued for 2,500. Talbot check-raised to 7,000 and Lamphere made the call.

The turn brought the {6-Hearts} and Talbot checked again. Lamphere tossed in a bet of 7,500 and Talbot just called this time. The river was the {10-Clubs} and Talbot checked for the third time. Lamphere shoved all in for 54,700 and Talbot asked for a count before giving it some thought. He eventually laid his hand down and Lamphere ensured he made the right decision.

"Good fold. I had a pair," Lamphere said as Talbot knuckled the table.
