Event 18: 10th Place - Jacob Schindler

$1850 + $150 No Limit Hold'em

Jacob Schindler (Brynmar, PA)

Jacob Schindler has a heck of a bad beat story to tell as the 10th place finisher. The end of Day 1 chip leader's pocket aces are cracked by quad kings, "crushing my dreams."

Edward Pham opens with a min raise to 24k
Schindler raises to 61k
Pham 4-bets to 135k
Schindler 5-bet jams 600k
Pham calls

Schindler: A♠ A
Pham: KK

Flop: K♠ 4♠ 5♠ (Pham set of kings/Schindler nut flush draw)
Turn: K♣ (Pham Quad kings/Schindler drawing dead)
River: X

Pham's quad kings takes down a 1.2 million chip pot and he's now the chip leader.
