Coming off a runner-up finish in the $25,000 High Roller earlier this week, Schindler has finally claimed the top spot on the podium. The Pennsylvania native declined to speak afterward, but it’s hard to dispute that he is one of the best no-limit hold’em players over the past decade.
The last hand of the tournament turned out to be a cooler as both players were dealt premium hands. Schindler held ace-king and was dominating the ace-queen suited of Schutten. A king on the flop put Schindler well out front and Schutten was left drawing dead on the turn.
