Prior to the start of this year’s WSOP, Jake Schindler was regarded as one of the best players to never win a WSOP bracelet. That all changed on Wednesday as Schinder took down the $50,000 No-Limit Hold’em to win $1,328,068.

Schindler outlasted a field of 101 over three days that included many of the game’s best, including at the final table, which saw high roller regulars such as Shannon Shorr, David Peters and Andrew Lichtenberg. Schindler took home a seven-figure score while the other players at the final table earned well into the six figures.

  • 1st – Jake Schindler – $1,328,068
  • 2nd – Brekstyn Schutten – $820,808
  • 3rd – Punnat Punsri – $593,481
  • 4th – Shannon Shorr – $436,412
  • 5th – David Peters – $326,464
  • 6th – Andrew Lichtenberger – $248,516

The win was not without controversy, however as Schindler still has not addressed cheating allegations that came against him, refusing requests for interviews after the win. Shindler, Ali Imsirovic, Bryn Kenney and other high stakes pros are among pros that have been accused of past cheating over the past few month. Schindler was banned from GG Poker for using real-time assistance.

To claim the win, Moncek had to outlast a field of 522 entries over three days including Ben Ross heads-up. 2015 WSOP Main Event winner Joe McKeehen finished the event in 5th place for $32,761.

After his victory, Diebold thanked Mike Gorodinsky, his heads-up opponent. “He’s a very, very good friend of mine. He’s helped me a lot in my mixed game. A lot of this is because of him. He’s a great guy, a great player and a very good person.”
