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

Huge One Split

• Taso 7: 15,000-30,000, 0 ante

A huge hand just played out where Darin Thomas had the majority of his chips in the middle against Brian Meinders. It was three-bet preflop and a {4-Spades}{a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} board was spread out. Meinders led on the flop and Thomas called. The turn would see Meinders bet, Thomas raise, Meinders re-raise and Thomas call.

On the river, Meinders led out again and Thomas raised it up. Meinders gave a shrug as he made the call and the two players turned their hands over.

Meinders: {j-Hearts}{8-Spades}
Thomas: {j-Spades}{10-Spades}

Thomas had Meinders up until the river, and if it fell differently, may have doubled-up. However, a split pot wasn't the worst case situation as he is still in this tournament and in with a chance of taking it down.
