John Schroer

Gerald Cunniff raised to 120,000 on the button and was called by John Schroer in the big blind.

On the {5-Spades}{10-Hearts}{2-Spades} flop, Schroer check-raised Cunniff's continuation bet of 150,000 to 500,000.

Cunniff then moved all in for a little under 1,000,000 total.

After a couple of minutes of deliberation, Schroer called, slightly covered by Cunniff.

John Schroer: {a-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}
Gerald Cunniff: {5-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}

Cunniff's two pair led Schroer's top pair, top kicker, then held up as the dealer placed the {9-Clubs} on the turn and the {8-Diamonds} on the river.

With Schroer's elimination, the final table of nine has been reached and the players have been sent on a 45-minute dinner break.
