Jake Schindler Fells Shaun Deeb for SHRPO Big 4 High Roller Title and $800,758

The $2million guarantee attracted a host of big names to the SHRPO Big 4 High Roller this week, and perennial candidate for victory in the high-stakes tournament scene, Jake Schindler, lifted the title and $800,758 to land his 17th six-figure score of the year…

There was an impressive total of 123 entries to the $25,500 buy-in event, smashing the guarantee to set a $3,136,500 prizefund, to be shared by the top 16 finishers in the two-day biggie at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida.

Day one saw a hard-fought battle down to the final table, notables such as Ryan Riess (16th for $59,778, which he would follow up by scooping the $10k Turbo title the next day) and David Peters (bubbling the official final table for $80,073) making the money but not returning for day 2.

As the excellent SHRPO updates stated, the eight players returning boasted a combined $53 million in lifetime earnings, although former Seminole Hard Rock Poker Player of the Year Ory Hen fought his way there on the back of a $300 High Roller Step Satellite ticket, finally falling in a very creditable 7th spot and a $116,942 payday.

When the dust of a bruising final table had all but cleared, Schindler would face Shaun Deeb heads-up for the title and the to-and-fro battle culminated in a classic race, Deeb’s pocket tens outflopped by Schindler’s KQ, and although the turn promised Deeb some extra outs, the river bricked and Schindler emerged victorious.

“It’s a combination of practice and luck,” Schindler told reporters afterward. “I got good cards, made mostly right decisions and it worked out.”
