Fabian Schoneck

Fabian Schoneck first put himself at risk against Sergej Barbarez, moving all in preflop.

Fabian Schoneck: {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}
Sergej Barbarez: {k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{2-Clubs}

The board ran out {8-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{j-Spades} and Schoneck scored a much needed double-up.

The very next hand, Schoneck three-bet pot preflop and was called by Lance Howard. The flop fanned out {4-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} and Schoneck moved all in for 102,000. Howard went into the tank for just a moment before making the call.

Fabian Schoneck: {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}
Lance Howard: {q-Clubs}{9-Spades}{6-Hearts}{5-Hearts}

Schoneck faded all Howard's outs when the board completed with the {j-Diamonds} then the {5-Diamonds}, and he survived again, leaving Howard as the short stack.
