Event #20: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

Tuthill Advances

• Level 8: 400-800, 100 ante

From what we could gather, David Tuthill held the chip lead for most of his heads up match. He's just been able to seal the deal, defeating his opponent and winning his Day 2 seat.

On the final hand, Tuthill had his opponent all in before the flop and crushed. Tuthill held {A-Diamonds}{Q-Spades} against his opponent's {A-Clubs}{10-Hearts}. The flop came down {A-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{4-Spades}, giving each player top pair but keeping Tuthill in the lead with his queen kicker. The turn was the {3-Clubs} and the river the {4-Clubs}, ensuring Tuthill's victory. He bagged up 88,300 to end the night.
