Tom Schneider Now Has 2 Bracelets And 6 Cashes At WSOP 2013

Tom Schneider Now Has 2 Bracelets And 6 Cashes At WSOP 2013Every year in Las Vegas a player seems to go on an incredible hot streak and racks up multiple cashes and bracelets wins at the World Series of Poker, much to the envy and admiration of his peers. Who can forget, for instance, Phil Ivey’s 3 bracelets win in 2002, Jeff Lisandro’s 3 bracelets in 2009, or, for that matter, Greg Merson capturing 2 bracelets including the Main Event only last year.
At WSOP 2013, Dan Kelly is already emerging as a potential front runner having cashed an incredible 8 times, including a 5th place finish at the $1,500 NL Millionaire Maker (Event #6) for $302,104. However, Tom Schneider is undoubtedly the main player to watch after having just captured his 2nd bracelet of the tournament series so far, and 6 cashes in total for a combined payout of $598,933.
The four-times bracelet winner won his first event on June 7th at the $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. (Event #15) for $258,960, and now just over a week later the 53-year-old US pro has done it again, this time at the $5,000 H.O.R.S.E. (Event #29) for $318,955.
Following his victory on Monday, Tom Schneider commented: “I’m exhausted to be honest. Of course, I am so thankful to win and be here, but this was a very tough tournament. They guys I was up against in this event. They were all really great players.”
The $5,000 H.O.R.S.E. event attracted a small but incredible talented line-up of pros, with the 261 players subsequently creating a prize pool worth $1,226,700. Amongst those notable names cashing in at the event was Eli Elezra in 30th ($8,525), Gus Hansen in 28th ($8,525), Todd Brunson in 24th ($10,304), Dan Kelly in 17th ($10,304), and Marcel Luske in 13th ($15,321).
Tom Schneider then had to overcome a tough final table, which included Konstantin Puchkov, David Benyamine, Adam Friedman, Greg Mueller, before defeating Ben Scholl heads-up to claim the bracelet.
The final table payouts were as follows:
1 Tom Schneider           $318,955
2 Benjamin Scholl         $197,228
3 Gre Mueller             $129,600
4 Viatcheslav Ortynskiy   $94,664
5 Chris Klodnicki         $70,093
6 Adam Friedman           $52,613
7 David Benyamine         $40,039
8 Konstantin Puchkov      $30,876
