David Bach Eliminated in 12th Place ($12,998)
Stud Eight or Better
Before the break, David Bach's stack had been dwindling of late, and he was now all-in on third street against three players, Rep Porter, Tom Schneider, and George Rechnitzer.
On fifth street, Schneider bet out, Rechnitzer called, and Porter raised. Both other players called, then all checked sixth street. Schneider bet again on the river, prompting a fold from Rechnitzer and a call from Porter. The players revealed their hands:
Schneider won the high with his tens-full, Porter won the low with his seventy-five, and Bach was the odd man out. He has been eliminated in 12th place, earning $12,998.
After the hand, both Schneider and Porter sit with 705,000 in chips.
