Ten out of the 27 players who remained to play on Day 3 of the $1,000 NLHE Event (WSOP #34) were seated together before the 9-handed final table play began with the elimination of Steven Davisson at Level 25 (5,000/15,000/30,000):

First out was Jeremy Kottler and then Michael Souza and $1,500 NLHE Shootout event 2nd finisher Robbie ‘RobbieV’ Verspui were railed. Eventually, Justin Cohen played heads-up with Schmid, following Andrew Rudnik finishing in 3rd place and the elimination of Benjamin Volpe, Trevor Vanderveen and Jonathan Clancy before him.

Cohen gained a 3:1 lead in the first hand, but Schmid doubled up soon and in the last hand he already had the majority of the chips. It occurred at Level 30 (10,000/50,000/100,000); Schmid limped, Cohen checked preflop and they also checked the {#}K {#}T {#}7 flop. On the {#}7 turn, Cohen checked once again but Schmid bet $250,000 and Cohen called. It was Schmid again to bet 450,000 on the {#}A river, Cohen shoved and Schmid called.

Cohen: {#}J {#}7
