Schumacher Fades the Sweat to Double and Nearly Even Stacks Again

BrandonBloom • Level 40: 250,000-500,000, 500,000 ante
Johan Schumacher

Gershon Distenfeld raised to 1,000,000 and Johan Schumacher jammed. Distenfeld called and the two revealed their hands for yet another time.

Gershon Distenfeld: {a-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}
Johan Schumacher: {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts}

Distenfeld tilted his head back and frustratingly said "Ahhhh!", upon seeing he was dominated and this long battle would most likely continue.

A person from Schumacher's rail exclaimed "We like to hear that!", as laughter was heard from around the room, partially as a response to the remark, and partially as a result of the delirium caused by the lengthy heads-up that has seen many double-ups.

The dealer fanned out the {k-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} flop to give Schumacher top pair but also give Distenfeld a nut flush draw. The {10-Clubs} came on the turn to change nothing, and the {2-Clubs} completed the board to once again continue the match.

Following the hand, the players will now go on a 15-minute break that they requested on account of the fact that they have been battling each other for hours and continue to have similar stacks.
