Event 14: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

Schaefer Flying High

Brandon Schaefer has $784,905 of live tournaments winnings to his name, and an EPT title. He hasn't been around as much as late and he has a good reason why.

He followed his brother into the US Army with the intention of becoming a Helicopter pilot. Since last September he's been through basic training, survival school, and a number of other preliminary courses to be ready for Flight School.

He's due back in Alabama June 15th to begin the final part of his training. He thought he'd pop in the World Series of Poker for some nostalgia and one shot at a bracelet. He's two-thirds of the way there after winning his first table.
