Another event has just finished up at the 2013 World Series Of Poker, with the challenging $1.5k HORSE event seeing the remaining 21 players on Day 3 whittled down to the one lucky player left standing in Tom Schneider.
In total there were 862 players that took to this event on Day 1 but they were slowly chopped down in size to leave just 21 remaining at the start of play on Day 3.
The man that topped that field once all of the action had been completed was Tom Schneider after he managed to defeat Owais Ahmed heads up to claim his third WSOP bracelet. He achieved this after coming into the day in a strong position, holding the fifth highest chip count. He continued to increase that throughout the third day before finally being too strong for Ahmed.
The day did actually start out quite slowly and remained at that pace until the final table was established. It was at this table where things started to pick up in pace to finally reveal the WSOP’s latest bracelet winner in 2013.
The very last hand against his opponent saw Schneider make a seven-five in the Razz segment of the HORSE event to win the title and bracelet. Whilst it seemed like quite an easy victory for Schneider he actually had a tough final table that included three other WSOP bracelet holders in Ahmed, O’Dell and Porter.
Still, when you are running good and are playing good as well you stand a very good chance of winning in a tournament. That was certainly the case for Schneider on a day that saw just about everything go perfectly.
He has now reached $1.7 million in career earnings after this win and will be hoping he could possibly add to that throughout the remainder of the WSOP. He has never won more than WSOP event in one year, so that will be an achievement he will be hoping to make this time around.
