PCA 2015: Kevin Schultz Wins The Main Event & $1.5 Million

Tags: 2015 PCA, Kevin Schulz.
Posted on 15 January 2015 by "T".

Although Chance Kornuth was the big chip leader when the final table resumed yesterday, it was Kevin Schulz with the second largest stack who dominated play almost entirely until heads-up play. The 28-year-old American currently living in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, had a 4-1 lead over Diego Ventura, from Peru, when the final battle began.

Ventura eventually managed to double up with A9 vs Schulz's pocket threes, narrowing down the gap slightly. However, 26 hands later, Ventura's hopes of winning the title came to an abrupt end... 

Schulz had the small blind on the button and limped with KHeart3Diamond, Ventura checked with TDiamond4Diamond. The flop rolled out QSpade6Diamond4Heart and Ventura checked-called the bet of 365k from Schulz. The turn was the KClub and Ventura checked-called a bet of 775k. The river was the 6Club and Ventura checked once again. Schulz bet 900k and Ventura moved all in for 3.1 million. Schulz took two sips of water and asked for a count. He spent the next minute in the tank before quietly announcing a call.

"I'm pretty happy," Schulz told PokerStars Blog and later added "I felt good at the table. I had some pretty good reads on everybody, but you never know what's going to happen."

Schulz's first place finish was worth $1,491,580 and a luxury SLYDE watch.

Many congratulations to Kevin Schulz on winning this very prestigious title and taking home the first prize of 1.5 million. He looks to have played the final table nearly perfectly and thoroughly deserves the win

An excellent performance from Kevin Schulz.I had thought this would be won by Kornuth but a great result from a player who had only had one previous cash for $2500 so to go up to $1.5million is brilliant.

The first major of 2015 is in the bag with American Kevin Schulz taking top honours.
The extreme sports fan beat Diego Ventura heads-up for the $1,491,580 first prize. After the win he likened the feeling to his passion of skydiving:
"If you haven't skydived, you've got to get out there and try it. It's pretty awesome. But so far, this is maybe one of the most intense things I've done in my life."

K3o versus T4s is some serious game I have to tell ya, even in a heads up. I mean really (???) you would risk your chips playing out any of these hands? The suited one I can understand, but... Anyway why bother, congrats to both even though they probably couldn't care less about my opinion.
BTW Sorin congrats copypasting everything from p.strat nice to know you can use both Ctrl C and Ctrl V.
