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 on a 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 flop hit the felt. Thomas led and Meinders called. The turn would see Thomas check-call a bet from Meinders and Thomas would check again on the river (). This time when Meinders bet, Thomas would let his hand go, sending the pot to Meinders.
