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

Schaefer Soars

Brandon Schaefer

We are only a few hands into heads up and it is easy to see that both these players want it badly. Brandon Schaefer opened this most recent hand by making it 55,000 preflop. Jonathan Cohen made the call and both players were witness to a {8-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} flop. It was here that Cohen bet out 155,000. After a few moments of pondering Schaefer made the call.

A {5-Diamonds} on the turn brought a massive bet of 400,000 from Cohen. Schaefer had a huge decision on his hands, and right when it looked like Schaefer was going to opt out and fold, he moved all in.

Clearly this was not what Cohen expected, and he didn't bother to hide his mild disgust. After a minute or so Cohen deposited his cards in the muck. Schaefer now possess a strong chip advantage against his opponent.
