Event 51 - Schaaf Wins $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. Event!
Well, after galloping through a field of 803, James Schaaf is the man who has come out on top, winning through to pick up his first bracelet!
Here is how those last few moments played out.
In the Stud/8 variant of the game, Schaff raised 6♥ and Tommy Hang called with J♣.
On fourth street, Hang bet his 2♥ and Schaaf called with the 8♣.
On fifth street, Schaaf now took the lead, betting out with the 9♥, and Hang called with the 7♥.
On sixth, Schaaf bet out with the 8♥, Hang raised with the 7♠ all-in, and Schaaf called!!!
Hang showed down trip sevens, a powerful hand heads-up, BUT Schaaf continued the run of good cards he had, showing an eight in the hole to match the two he had on board for superior trips!!!!
So after a long drawn out final, Tommy Hang is busted, eliminated in second place, tantalizingly close to the bracelet, picking up a prize of $158,933, while James Schaaf is our CHAMPION, picking up a juicy first prize of $256,412 and of course the amazing, shiny, gold bracelet!!!
Join us shortly for the full interview and pictures of our winner but for now, we send our congratulations to a brand-new bracelet winner, James Schaaf.
