2014 World Series of Poker

Event #8: $1,500 Millionaire Maker No-Limit Hold'em
Days: 1a

Russell Thomas Outdrawn

Level 7 : 150-300, 50 ante

We get to the table with approximately 9,000 in the pot and Russell Thomas all in on a {Q-Hearts}{J-Hearts}{8-Clubs} board. An older gentleman two seats to his left called and a player in the 10 seat tanked for a bit before folding {A-}{Q-} face up.

"You got me?" asked Thomas, as he turned over {K-Hearts}{K-Clubs}.

"Not yet," said his opponent, turning over {J-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}.

The turn was the {9-Diamonds} giving Thomas's opponent a straight and leading him to say "now I do."

Only a ten would save the day for the 2012 WSOP Main Event 4th place finisher but it was not to be as the river was the {6-Clubs}.
