Event #20: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Hands #52-57: Schindler Turns the Nut Straight Before a Break

Jan_Kores • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 50,000 ante

Hand #52: Shawn Buchanan received a walk.

Hand #53: A walk for David Laka.

Hand #54: Jake Schindler made it 100,000 and John Amato called in the big blind. They checked the {10-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{5-Spades}{4-Hearts} board until the showdown where Amato's {A-}{7-} lost to Schindler's {A-}{K-}.

Hand #55: Jeremy Wien scooped the pot with a raise to 130,000.

Hand #56: David Peters open jammed his 595,000 in the middle from the second position and found no competitor.

Hand #57: David Laka raised to 100,000 in the hijack and Jake Schindler defended out of the big blind. Laka bet 90,000 again on the {10-Clubs}{4-Spades}{9-Hearts} flop and Schindler stuck around, check-calling.

The turn was the {Q-Hearts} and Laka fired a second barrel worth 235,000. Schindler called again and the {3-Hearts} hit the river. Schindler checked for one last time and Laka didn't pull off another bet, saving himself from a further damage as Schindler opened {K-Spades}{J-Hearts} for a turned straight.

That was the last hand before the players headed for a 15-minute break.
