Schindler Continues to Crush

Jake Schindler is one of the most consistent and dominant live tournament players in the world. And he’s done it again with another big victory inside the PokerGO Studio.

He now has over $28.6 million in lifetime live tournament cashes, good for 15th on the all-time money list and 11th among Americans. Schindler has been crushing it in the toughest high rollers for years. Daniel Negreanu has said that he’s the best live tournament player in the world. If he isn’t, he’s certainly right up there along with the likes of Stephen Chidwick, Alex Foxen, and Justin Bonomo.

Schindler had to earn this win against a final table that included three of the best players in the world. Sean Winter, who has become a regular contender in high rollers the past few years, took fourth place ($62,500). Foxen, the 2018 and 2019 GP Player of the Year, busted in third place ($100,000), and then Schindler defeated another high-stakes legend in Nick Petrangelo heads-up ($175,000).
