$3,500 NLH Championship

Timo Schneider Eliminated in 17th Place ($40,068)

• Niveau 27: 50,000-75,000, 75,000 ante
Timo Schneider

James Romero opened to 175,000 from early position and Timo Schneider moved all in for less than that amount from the button. Ankush Mandavia called out of the big blind to create three-way action headed to the flop.

Mandavia checked and then folded to a bet from Romero on a flop of {8-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}.

Timo Schneider: {a-Hearts}{2-Spades}
James Romero: {j-Spades}{10-Spades}

Schneider was technically ahead but the equities ran pretty close with Romero having an open ended straight draw to go along with two live cards. The {q-Spades} turn ended affairs right then and there with Schneider making his way to the payout desk prior to the meaningless {8-Spades} river.
