$1,000 No-Limit Hold'em Opening Event

Thomson Takes It From Rubie


The flop showed {k-Spades}{8-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} and Brendon Rubie held {k-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}. John Thomson was all in holding {a-Clubs}{3-Clubs} and it was looking bleak for Thomson. The {a-Spades} on the turn was a miracle putting Thomson back in front and when the river bricked it was all good for Thomson who took down the double-up.
