Defending Champion Loses to Jacks


Action folded to the player in the hijack seat and he raised to an unknown amount. In the cutoff seat sat defending champion David Vamplew. He reraised to 1,700 and the original raiser called to see the {9-Clubs}{5-Spades}{2-Clubs} flop. The hijack checked and Vamplew bet 2,150. His opponent called.

The turn was the {6-Diamonds} and the hijack checked again. Vamplew stayed on the grass and fired 5,150. Again, his opponent called.

The river completed the board with the {10-Hearts} and both players checked. The hijack seat tabled the {J-Hearts}{J-Diamonds} and Vamplew mucked his hand, dropping back to 15,700 in chips.
