Thomas Muehloecker

Thomas Muehloecker has just taken down a big pot after confrontation with Alex Wu.

Pre-flop, Thomas raised to 800 from early position and seatmate Alex re-raised to 3,000. Thomas made the call and they saw a flop of {10-Clubs}{j-Spades}{j-Hearts}. Thomas bet out 2,700 and Alex made the call.

On the turn of {4-Spades}, Thomas bet out once again, this time for 3,600. Alex responded by re-raising to 8,100 and Thomas made the call.

River: {2-Diamonds}

When the river brought what seemed like a harmless card, Alex shoved all-in for his last 25,000, prompting Thomas to tank for a while.

Finally, he declared "call" and showed {a-Clubs}{a-Spades}, which was way ahead of Alex's {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}.

Thomas is now up to about 60,000 in chips while Alex is down to about 12,000.
