Big Slick Does The Trick For Schindler

Jake Schindler from an earlier event

Anthony Zinno limped under-the-gun and James Chen raised to 60,000 from the hijack. Action folded to Jake Schindler in the small blind, who shoved for 225,000. Only Chen called.

James Chen: {a-Clubs}{a-Spades}
Jake Schindler: {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}

Schindler was in terrible shape, but the {2-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} gave Schindler a sweat to a king or a diamond.

The {3-Diamonds} came right in on the turn, leaving Chen drawing dead.

An irrelevant {4-Spades} completed the board and Schindler doubled up.
