Down to a meager 250 chips earlier today, Max Schindler was more than pleased to make it to the final table. However, upon making it here, Schindler had his hopes set on finishing better than 9th, but that is what he will have to settle for.
Julien Martini opened to 35,000 in early position and Schindler jammed for 136,000 total in the big blind. Martini called with A♦4♣4♥10♠ and was facing the A♠J♣6♦5♣ of Schindler. The Q♥9♥3♥3♠2♦ board was not the one Schindler was looking for and he is the first player out from the final table.
Martini was playing over 450,000 for a brief moment but after doubling up Trevor Reader, is playing 375,000, which puts him next to Robert Cowen for the chip lead. Reader and Pete Mall are the two short stacks with both players having about 170,000 in front of them.
