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

Thomas Last To Advance

Darin Thomas - The Last to Advance

Darin Thomas has become the final player to advance to tomorrow's final table. After getting Daniel Walker down to a short-stack on the previous hand, Walker raised and Thomas snap three-bet. After more raises, Walker got his entire chip stack in the middle holding {K-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}. Thomas was ahead with {A-Clubs}{J-Spades} and hoping to finally end his long drawn out match here.

The flop came down {3-Spades}{10-Hearts}{j-Clubs}, pairing Walker's low card, but pairing Thomas' low card as well. Thomas' pair of jacks was leading and retained that lead through a {4-Hearts} turn and the {7-Clubs} river. Thomas will be taking a stack of 155,500 into play tomorrow.

After the match, Thomas would comment on how stupefied he was that his opponent wanted a dinner break. Thomas was left with only four and a half big bets left and pleaded that he and his opponent finish the match, but his opponent would hear none of it, insisting on a dinner break. Fortunately for Thomas, it all worked out on the end, as he was able to come back after the dinner break and find victory.
