Julie Schneider


Julie Schneider was down to her last 9,000, and that went in from the big blind. Matthew Ashton put in a raise, and Kristopher Tong put out two bets. It got back around to Ashton, and he made the call. The flop came down {6-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}, and Ashton checked to Tong, who fired out. Ashton threw out a check raise, and Tong came along to see the {k-Hearts} hit the turn. Ashton led out, and Tong once again called. The river brought the {j-Spades}, and Ashton threw one more bet out. Tong reluctantly folded, and Ashton tabled {5-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{10-Hearts} for a full house.

Schneider was drawing very thin, but she could still win the pot. She sweated her cards one at at time. First card: {q-Diamonds}. Second card: {8-Clubs}. Schneider was now drawing virtually dead, and the {9-Diamonds} she revealed for her third card confirmed that.

Schneider will take home just under $20,000 for her efforts, while Ashton is back up to 360,000.
