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

Thomas Manages the Double

Darin Thomas

Darin Thomas just got the remainder of his stack in preflop when he and Brian Meinders put in just shy of seven bets (betting is uncapped when heads-up).

When the two players turned their hands over, it was looking like we would have our champion, Meinders well ahead of Thomas.

Meinders: {a-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}
Thomas: {a-Hearts}{3-Hearts}

Board: {3-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{j-Spades}{4-Clubs}{q-Spades}

Thomas survived, while he still has a huge chip deficit.

Brian Meinders us 1,300,000 1,137,600
Darin Thomas 350,000 194,500
