Schwecke Quartering and Chopping His Way Towards the Top


He is not quite there yet but Tyler Schwecke is doing very well today at a tough table with Men Nguyen, Chris Klodnicki, John O'Shea and Shaun Deeb. Schwecke was just involved in two pots, and even though he didn't scoop any of them a nice profit was still made.

On the first hand the board read {4-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{K-Hearts} when Deeb and Schwecke checked to O'Shea who bet 4,000. Deeb made the call from the blinds and Schwecke decided to raise. O'Shea tanked for a bit before three-betting to 12,000 and Deeb quickly folded. Schwecke called giving us heads up river action. The river was the {3-Hearts} and both players checked. Schwecke turned over {A-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{7-Hearts} for a full house and an ace-seven low. O'Shea tabled {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{7-Clubs} for the same low and just a pair of kings, and after initially thinking he got half he had to settle for a quarter.

The very next hand Schwecke raised and both O'Shea and Deeb called. On a {Q-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{3-Clubs} flop it got checked to O'Shea who bet 2,000 and both his opponents called. The turn was the {Q-Hearts} and all three players checked. The river was the {Q-Spades} and Deeb checked to Schwecke who threw out 4,000. O'Shea tanked and folded but Deeb wasn't going anywhere. He called and Schwecke announced "Ace high." Deeb waited for Schwecke to turn over his ace with a bunch of low cards to be sure that his {A-Hearts}{J-Hearts} was the winning high hand since there was no low possible on this board. Deeb picked up half the pot but so did Schwecke who is up to 88,000 chips.

Tyler Schwecke us 88,000 68,800
Shaun Deeb us 75,000 -7,000
John O'Shea 36,500 16,500
