Event 9: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Re-Entry

Schneider Sends One South

In 2006 Tom Schneider wowed crowds at the World Series of Poker when he took home two bracelets, one in the $2,500 Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo 8 or Better event, and the second less than a month later in the $1,000 Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo 8 or Better. This feat helped catapult Schneider into winning the WSOP Player of the Year award in 2006. Since then, Schneider has proven to be a consistently great tournament player, earning himself $1,705,773 in lifetime winnings.

When we walked to Schneider's table, we found a short stacked player open the action by moving all in for 5,775. Action folded to Schneider on the button who moved all in over the top for not too much more. The blinds got out of the way and the hands were exposed:

Schneider: {A-Spades}{10-Spades}
Opponent: {3-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}

Schneider's opponent kept his lead when the flop fell {9-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}, but fell behind when Schneider hit a pair with the {10-Clubs} on fourth street. The board completed with a {K-Clubs} and Schneider was able to send a player packing and just about double his stack. Schneider is currently sitting on about 11,500.
