Event #40: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Schneider Gets Involved For Half His Stack

• Lygis 7: 150-300, 25 ante

The action started with the cutoff who made a raise to 600. The button decided to re-raise to 1,550. Tom Schneider was next to act and made it 5,050 to go. The cutoff folded and then the button shipped all in.

Schneider asked for a count and it was a tad under 10,000 for him to call. After lamenting his options Schneider called. The two flipped over their cards.

Schneider: {k-Clubs}{q-Spades}
Opponent: {a-Spades}{7-Diamonds}

Schneider needed help to win and eliminate his opponent. The flop came {6-Spades}{8-Spades}{a-Diamonds}. That took Schneider from being a small dog to a big underdog. The turn made it official with the {5-Spades}. The meaningless {q-Hearts} gave the pot to Schneider's opponent.

Schneider will need some work to get back to his stack before the hand. After the hand Schneider had 13,800 in chips.
