Poker Pro Banned from EPT

Luke “_FullFlush1” Schwartz might be trying to set a new record in the game of poker. Schwartz may be the first professional poker pro to be banned from multiple poker venues and tours if he keeps up with his controversial attitude. A few weeks ago Schwartz was banned from the Vic Casino in London and this week the poker pro has been banned from the remaining season of the European Poker Tour.

Schwartz was banned a few weeks ago from the Vic Casino in London after he refused to take off his hat. This week Schwartz was able to attend the European Tour Event in London only because his friend Eddie Hearn vouched for him and had the ban overturned at the casino.

Schwartz was at the EPT London event to compete in the Main Event. He only made it to Day 2 play before he was busted so I would guess he was little agitated. Schwartz then went to get a sandwich and when he was asked to pay for the sandwich (what normal people do when they get food from a restaurant) he proceeded to pitch a big hissy fit.

Schwartz thougth he was entitled to a free sandwich as a VIP customer though the casino disagreed. An argument began and Schwartz was escorted from the building and then banned from all remaining European Tour events for this season.

So, Schwartz pretty much lost a ton of potential money because he refused to pay a couple dollars for a sandwich. Seems pretty stupid to me.  But apparently Schwartz is known for being outspoken. He has made remarks about poker pro Tom Dwan saying that he cannot stand the poker pro and that he is ‘geeky’ and ‘gay’. Schwartz was also banned from using the chat feature at Full Tilt poker because of certain comments he made so he decided to leave the site.

Through his various comments, it seems as though Schwartz has only just begun with his tirades and we have not seen the last of his obnoxious and cocky behavior.
