Event #73: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em MAIN EVENT - World Championship

Tboss • Level 9: 800-1,600, 1,600 ante
Matt Stout

With roughly 13,000 in the middle already, the flop was {q-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{2-Clubs} and Stout had gotten all of his 60,000 chips into the pot.

Matt Stout: {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}
Opponent: {a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}

Stout had flopped top set but was in trouble against his opponents' already made flush. The turn was no help when the {k-Spades} hit but the river was the {9-Spades} giving Stout queens full of nines to double up and stay in the tournament.
