Thomas Sends One to the Rail Early

There was just another elimination from the tournament, and the beneficiary of the hand was none other than Octo-Niner Russell Thomas.

It happened when the player in the cutoff raised to 225, the button called, and Thomas three-bet to 950 from the big blind. Both his opponents called and three players saw a flop of {q-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{6-Clubs}. Thomas checked, the cutoff bet 1,100, and both the button and Thomas called.

Two checks on the {4-Hearts} turn saw one of the players bet 3,000 and only Thomas called. When the {K-Spades} completed the board on the river, Thomas checked and then called when the cutoff moved all in. Thomas tabled the {q-Hearts}{q-Spades} for a full house, and it was good as his opponent mucked his cards before making a hasty exit from the tournament area.
