Noah Schwartz

A player raised UTG+1 to 16,000, Noah Schwartz moved all in from middle position for 106,000, and his opponent waited for an exact count and thought for a while before he called with 7s7d.

Schwartz turned over JsJd, and needed it to hold to stay alive.

The board came As2d2cJhQs, and Schwartz turned a full house, jacks full of deuces, to clinch the pot and double up in chips.

Noah Schwartz  –  232,000  (29 bb)
