Thomas Hall

Michael Zucchet began the action by raising to 45,000 from middle position. Two seats to his left, Thomas Hall moved all in for his entire stack of about 330,000. Action folded back to Zucchet who quickly called.

Zucchet: {A-Spades}{K-Clubs}
Hall: {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts}

The flop came {J-Hearts}{6-Spades}{8-Diamonds} giving Hall a set, and it looked as if it would be an easy double up from there, but the {10-Clubs} turn gave Zucchet some outs that he didn't have before. On the river the {Q-Clubs} came, completely devastating Hall as Zucchet had hit perfect perfect to win the hand with the nut straight on the river.

Hall let out a few deep breaths but managed to maintain his composure through the brutal suck out as he shook hands with everyone and made his way from the tournament area.
