The Final Table
The elimination started with Michael Addamo, who had the lowest chip count in the finale. The Australian player did not make much progress and his ace-king was not enough to save him from the pocket queens of Adams. Both players had somehow similar amounts of the stacks.
The game continued for a few hours until Timothy Adams’s pocket aces took control of the Ali Imsirovic’s pocket kings. Adams amazed everyone with his two early knockouts and almost moved to the top of the leaderboard. He entered the day at the near bottom of the board.
Teun Mulder was next in the elimination line. His ace-queen was not enough to save him from the king-jack of Schindler as jack came on the flop. The Dutch player went home with $560,000 for his fifth position. Schindler had a prominent chip lead till the dinner break. He had over four million chips while Vogelsang followed him with over 1.5 million chips.
Shortly after the dinner break, Adams lost to Phua. Adams’s ace-jack was deficient against the ace-queen of Phua. Adams’s luck didn’t favor when a queen appeared on the flop. Adams received $880,000 for his fourth place. The German pro, Christoph Vogelsang lost to Schindler. Vogelsang took his shot with a queen nine and decided to call for his whole stack but Schindler defeated him with his pocket sixes. Vogelsang came third with an income of $1,280,000.
Schindler had a lead in the Heads-up play with 5,700,000 in chips to Phua’s 2,300,000. Schindler started picking Phua apart straight away. Phua was down to less than 1,500,000 and another big bluff from Schindler hammered Phua to less than 1,000,000 in chips. He went in with queen-four for his few remaining chips but lost to Schindler’s queen-jack. Phua finished second and Schindler became the champion.
Jake Schindler’s Reaction
Jake Schindler told the media that he feels great and he performed well to win the big one. Schindler finished third in Triton’s Event#2, but he considered it a disappointing finish as he had a chip lead till the Mulder, who secured first place, overthrew Schindler’s pocket queens. Schindler felt great to win this one and he is planning to participate in the EPT Monte Carlo.
