Luke "__FullFlush1__" Schwartz finally won a WSOP gold bracelet last night, after taking down the $10k Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw Championship and $273,336 home with him.
There were exactly 100 entries to the event, which means prizepool stood at $940,000, although Schwartz said afterwards that the money wasn’t the goal for him and his focus was on the bracelet:
“I don't think I looked at the payouts at all, I just wanted the bracelet. I just wanted to win it", said Schwarz.
The six-man final table was down to three when Schwarz was facing off with George Wolff and his long-time regular online opponent Johannes Becker.
"He's, like, the best”, said Luke, adding: “Everyone thinks he's the best 2-7 player in the world".
After an five-hour lasting battle, Becker finally fell in 3rd and leaving Schwarz vs Wolff for the title, but Wolff couldnt get it done.
"It feels pretty good, pretty relieving. It's a nice thing to have as a poker player," Schwartz told WSOP reporters afterwards.
