Johan Schumacher Eliminated in 2nd Place ($126,133)

Johan Schumacher

Johan Schumacher got down to only a couple of big blinds again and doubled before this hand to have 2,600,000 chips. "Nine lives", Distenfeld said, referencing the fact that it seemed Schumacher had doubled for the ninth time and was out of doubles.

On this hand, Schumacher jammed in the small blind and Gershon Distenfeld called.

Johan Schumacher: {q-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}
Gershon Distenfeld: {q-Clubs}{4-Spades}

The flop came {a-Hearts}{q-Spades}{7-Spades}. Distenfeld and his rail were calling for a four, and the {4-Hearts} indeed came on the turn to vault him into the lead.

The dealer paused for a while before putting out the final card, and eventually, he completed the board with the {k-Spades} to finally end the tournament and give Distenfeld his first World Series of Poker bracelet. Schumacher, meanwhile, will have to settle for a $126,133 consolation for his runner-up finish.
