First, Aaron @Asmoke21imallin Thomas 4-bets with AA, gets Kathy Stahl to 5-bet shove with JJ, and sees Kathy flop a J for a 70,000-chip pot. Then he tries to make a play against Ben Deach and sees 20,000 of his remaining 25,000 go away.
Now he moves all-in UTG for his last 5,800 and Russell Garrett calls from UTG+1. Everyone else folds and the cards are turned up.
The flop is , Garrett catches top pair and Thomas is drawing just about as thin as you can get.
Thomas reaches for his backpack as the hits the turn and his outs increase exponentially.
Yep, the tried-n-true BackPackMove works as the lands on the river to save Thomas and give him 11,000 to work with.
