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

Cautious Big Stack Play

Brandon Schaefer and Layne Flack are the two chip leaders and have mostly, until just now, avoided each other today, which is understandable.

Schaefer opened to 30,000 from the button and Flack defended to see a {7-Hearts}{q-Spades}{a-Hearts} flop. Schaefer continued for 35,000 and Flack check-called to the {5-Diamonds} turn. Schaefer had another barrel lined up, and the 90,000 did the trick as Flack check-folded.

Layne Flack us 1,760,000 -90,000
Brandon Schaefer us 1,240,000 98,000

Tagit: Brandon Schaefer
