Outcome

Preflop, final table, heads-up, with the blinds at 50,000 and 100,000 and a 100,000 ante, Schindler called from the button, and Vogelsang checked in the big blind. On the flop Vogelsang checked, Schindler bet 100,000, and Vogelsang called. On the turn Vogelsang checked, Schindler bet 400,000, Vogelsang raised to 1,500,000, and Schindler called. On the river Vogelsang bet 2,300,000, Schindler went all-in, and Vogelsang called.

Analysis

Vogelsang checked his top pair over on the flop, and Schindler had missed entirely but attempted to use position to buy the pot with a small bet. The turn was an action card – it gave Vogelsang two-pair while suddenly improving Schindler to a combination draw with flush and gutshot straight potential. Vogelsang submitted another one of his excellent check-raises after Schindler decided against the free card. Vogelsang went for value on the river, while Schindler made a mistake and raised with his busted draw. Schindler should have been alarmed by the action on the turn, finding an opponent suddenly willing to invest 1.5 million with a check raise after such little action on the flop. Schindler still held 6.2 million as the river card was dealt, giving him a stack of 62 big blinds. With a $2.4 million difference between 1st and 2nd, Schindler needed to find a better spot. Vogelsang made the call, scoring his first live tournament victory and $6,000,000. Schindler earned a $3,600,000 consolation prize.
