Meinders Wins A Couple

Darin Thomas started the heads-up battle strong, managing to take down a few small pots. That continued to be the case until Brian Meinders picked off a couple of hands. The first nice pot that Meinders took down saw him too strong holding {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts} on a {a-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{7-Hearts} board, with the flush scooping up the pot.

A couple of hands later and Meinders would be taking it down again. This one started when Meinders opened it up from the button. Thomas three-bet and Meinders called as a {9-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{10-Spades} flop hit the felt. Thomas led and Meinders called. The {5-Clubs} turn would see Thomas check-call a bet from Meinders and Thomas would check again on the river ({j-Clubs}). This time when Meinders bet, Thomas would let his hand go, sending the pot to Meinders.
