Darin Thomas - 2nd Place

Brian Meinders raised preflop and a short-stacked Darin Thomas called. The flop was {8-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{6-Spades} and Thomas checked. Meinders bet and Thomas raised, and after a series of raises the two got it all in.

Meinders: {5-Spades}{3-Spades}
Thomas: {Q-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}

Meinders was looking for spades and found even more outs when the {4-Clubs} turned. The {7-Spades} drilled the river, fulfilling both his straight and flush, and giving him the winning hand. Thomas will take home $71,704 for his efforts.
