Under the gun, William Reynolds came in with a raise to 27,000, and Daniel Schmieding three-bet to 61,000 a couple seats over. Reynolds' response was an all-in shove for 211,000 total. Schmieding made the call for the majority of his own stack, and the cards were on their backs.
"Oh boy," Reynolds said with an air of nervousness. "This is just silly." Flipping for nearly a chip-average pot is always fun with about 50 players left in the PCA, and Reynolds and Schmieding were both doing some shifting in their chairs in anticipation.
The flop was a miss for the at-risk player, and Reynolds would not be able to get over the hump. The turn was close but no cigar, and the river was a blank, too. Unable to improve his two overs, the curly blond-haired pro sighed and gathered his things for a trip to the cashier. His day is done, and Schmieding is back to 600,000 thanks to the sixes.
