David Lappin started the day in a precarious position with a smallish stack and unfortunately proved unable to spin it up.
In order to put himself into contention, he likely needed to win a few coin flips and when his pocket tens ran into A-J and the board fell Jh 8s 9c to put his opponent ahead, Lappin was in serious danger of elimination.
He still had a straight draw and a spiked ten to save himself but the bricked 8d 2s turn and river saw his challenge evaporate.
Well played sir. He graciously congratulated his opponent and departed the tournament arena without pomp or ceremony. Perhaps we’ll see him later for one of the side events…
