WSOP 2013: Tom Schneider Wins $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. EventTom Schneider has won WSOP $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. (Event #15), after overcoming a field of 862 players over three days on his way to capturing a gold bracelet, as well as the $258,960 first place prize.

Commenting on his impressive victory, Tom Schneider said: “I’ve been cashing a lot in events. Last year, I cashed in six events, but I seemed to be missing out on going deep and making a final table. It had been a while. It’s nice to know I can still play. There are a lot of good players now. The events are tougher than they’ve ever been. It’s just nice to get some validation that I can still play with these younger kids.”
