Paul Schumer Eliminated in 15th Place ($9,467)

[user135779] • Level 21: 10,000-20,000, 0 ante

Despite having doubled up in one of the first hands of the day, overall short stack Paul Schumer has bowed out in 15th place.

Earlier, Schumer committed his last 26,000 chips into the middle before the flop with {A-Clubs}{5-Hearts}, ahead of Bryan Pimlott's {K-Hearts}{10-Hearts}, pairing his ace on the flop to double up.

A short time later though, Schumer's fate was sealed. The action folded around to Scott Clements who came in with a raise and then Schumer reraised all-in for just 7,000 more. Bill Davis called from late position, as did Clements before they checked down the board of {9-Clubs}{K-Spades}{8-Spades}{10-Hearts}{4-Spades}.

Davis showed {7-Spades}{7-Hearts}, which was good against the {A-}{J-} of Clements and the {A-}{Q-} of Schumer. Schumer collects $9,467. Not bad for 15 minutes' work in one day!
