Event 25: $1,500 Limit Hold'em Shootout

Daniel Almost Walking

Daniel Walker is struggling at the moment. He recently lost a huge portion of his chips to Darin Thomas, courtesy of the following hand. Walker started up the hand by opening the button. Darin Thomas three-bet and a call from Walker would see a flop of {q-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} dealt on the flop. Thomas then proceeded to bet on the flop and each street as a turn ({7-Hearts}) and river ({j-Clubs}) was dealt. Walker called on the flop and turn, but raised it up on the river. Thomas made the call and the two players turned their hands over.

Walker: {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs}
Thomas: {a-Spades}{q-Hearts}

Thomas has Walker outkicked, raking in the pot and leaving Walker crippled.
