The turn was the Th, and Mateos moved all in for 565,000. Schillhabel called instantly to put him at risk.

Schillhabel: 3h7c

As the chips were tidied up for the winner’s photo, the staff asked Schillhabel if he was interested in jumping into the other event that’s running.

“Late reg the $2k?” one asked.

“No, I get drunk now,” Schillhabel smiled.
