Event #2: $25,000 Mixed-Max No-Limit Hold'em

Schwartz Doubles Through Schulman

• Level 17: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Noah Schwartz was under the gun and opened to 23,000. Action trickled all of the way around to Nick Schulman in the big blind. The two-time WSOP bracelet winner cut out a three-bet to 63,000. Schwartz announced an all in four-bet over the top for 255,000 and Schulman quickly called.

Schwartz: {K-Spades}{K-Clubs}
Schulman: {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}

The flop rolled out {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{J-Spades}, giving Schulman top two pair but keeping Schwartz in the lead with a set of cowboys. The {8-Hearts} came on fourth street, leaving Schulman hunting for an ace on the river. The spirit of Barry Greenstein was not in the room, however, as the river brought the {7-Diamonds}. Schwartz scored the double and now sits on about 520,000. Schulman, on the other hand, was left with 82,000.
