Event #7: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em Championship

Thorsten Schafer Eliminated in 17th Place ($25,348)

Thorsten Schafer - 17th place

Action folded to a short-stacked Thorsten Schafer in the cutoff and he out in a standard raise. Both the button and small blind folded, but Jason DeWitt pushed back with a reraise from the big blind. Schafer then moved all in, DeWitt called the additional chips, and it was time to show their holdings.

Schafer: {K-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}
DeWitt: {A-Spades}{K-Spades}

Schafer was sharing a king with DeWitt, but his queen was far behind his opponent's ace. The {5-Clubs}{A-Hearts}{9-Hearts} flop was disaster for Schafer as it paired DeWitt's ace. The {3-Hearts} turn and {J-Hearts} river changed nothing and Schafer's day came to an end in 17th place.
