Schneider's Rockets Shot Down

Shamus

Tom Schneider opened with a raise to 425 from middle position, and it folded to the player on the button.

He asked Schneider what he had left, and Schneider stacked his chips in front of him so one could see he had about 2,350. Schneider's opponent then reraised to 1,050, and the blinds fold. Schneider exhaled and said with what looked like resignation that he was all in, and his opponent called.

Schneider then flipped over his {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}, which evoked an "ooh" or two from the table. He looked to be in good shape versus his opponent's {J-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}.

But the dealer then delivered a bunch of hearts among the community cards -- {5-Hearts}{2-Spades}{3-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{7-Hearts} -- and Schneider was eliminated.
