Heads up lasted a little over an hour thanks to some serious survival poker played by Omaha Ed Tonnellier. Playing seven stud high/lo Tonnellier was all in for close to ten hands in a row before finally bowing out of the event when his heart flush of K♦ 2♥ K♥ 9♥ 6♥ 7♣ 3♥ was bested by Schneider's full house.
Holding A♣ 4♠ Q♥ A♠ 3♦ A♦ Schneider flashed his final card to the rail birds before seeing for himself that the 4♣ had given him a full house.
Tonnellier will take home $118,456 for second. Along with $214,347 Schneider takes home the bracelet and the prestige of winning a WSOP event with a field of serious challengers. Congrats Tommy!
