A $5,000 buy-in and the poker variant H.O.R.S.E. brought 261 players to the tables to build a prizepool of $1,226,700. The shining star at the end of it all had also shone just a little over a week ago in Event 15 $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. - Tom Schneider!

The fourth and final day found Schneider with almost 64 percent of the chips in play and he never gave up the lead. Heads-up play came down to former WSOP gold bracelet winner Benjamin Scholl and Tom Schneider. Scholl was way behind in the chip stacking contest and could never put anything together in the 20 minutes of heads-up play.

The final hand was in the Limit Hold'em round and Scholl put all of his chips in with {K-Diamonds}{Q-Spades} on a board of {A-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{6-Spades}{K-Clubs}. Schneider held the {A-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}; the {J-Hearts} on the river paired the board to give Schneider gold bracelet number two in the 2013 Series and he caught hugs and more from his wife and supporters.

Schneider won his first two bracelets in 2007 and that was the year he also won WSOP Player of the Year. This Series finds him with two pieces of gold and he's right back in the race for Player of the Year. Obviously he hopes to win that honor twice and add another first to his record.
