It appeared Adam Lamphere opened with a raise from the under-the-gun position and Tony Ruberto three-bet jammed for 680,000 from middle position. Action folded back to Lamphere and he called.

Lamphere: {q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}
Ruberto: {8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}

Ruberto had found a pocket pair, but it was second best to Lamphere's ladies. The {7-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} flop gave Ruberto some backdoor straight options, but the {K-Diamonds} turn took them away. Ruberto needed an eight and an eight only on the river to keep his 2014 WSOP Main Event hopes alive, but it was not meant to be as the {3-Spades} blanked on the river.

Ruberto exited in 68th place for $103,025 while Lamphere, who began the day as the third shortest stack with 470,000 chipped up to 2.29 million.
