Event #60 of the World Series of Poker finished up this past weekend and it was Nick Schulman who outlasted the field of 101 players to win the event. The 2-7 Draw Lowball (No Limit) event had a buy-in of $10,000 and Nick would earn almost $295,000 for the win.
On day 1 the Amazon Room was abuzz as the best of the best hit the tables to try and win the coveted gold bracelet. Most everyone at the table knew each other so the event became more of a social event than a poker tournament. Despite the friendly atmosphere, players were still competitive and by the end of day 1 several notable players had exited the tournament. Allen Cunningham, Chad Brown, Shaun Deeb, Brandon Cantu and Tom Marchese were just a few of the players who were eliminated by the end of day 1.
By day 2 fifty four players returned to try and make the final table of the event or at least the top fourteen to be able to earn a payday. Other pros were eliminated just before cashing out and those were: Tom Schneider, Jennifer Harmon, Phil Ivey, David Williams, Barry Greenstein and Justin Bonomo just to name a few. A few more players would hit the rail on day 2 and then Marco Traniello, Daniel Negreanu, Jason Mercier and Erik Seidel would be eliminated but in the money, by the end of day 2.
Day 3 would see ten players returning and Andy Bloch and Larry Wright would be eliminated during the first level of game play. This would create the final eight and the players would move to the Pavilion to finish out the tournament.
The first player to be eliminated would be Ali Eslami and then quickly Bob Bright who was the short stack. John Juanda would be knocked out next after going against Ashton Griffin. Griffin’s hand stood firm and Juanda had several outs but would lose out with the final card. Griffin would then go out next in fifth place followed closely by Benjamin Parker and George Danzer. This would leave Mike Wattel and Nick Schulman in heads up play.
Schulman held a nice chip lead and within ten minutes of heads up play he had Wattel all in. Schulman showed 9x-6x-4x-3x and Wattel showed 6x-4x-3x-2x. Schulman earned a 7 of hearts and Wattel earned a King and this would end his time in the tournament. Schulman would earn his second WSOP bracelet with the win.
