2019 WSOP: Event #65: $10,000 PLO Hi-Lo 8 or Better won by Nick Schulman for $463,670, Third Bracelet earned

On July 1 (Monday), an American poker pro managed to earn his third gold bracelet after winning Event #65 of the 2019 WSOP.

2019 WSOP Event #65: $10,000 PLO Hi-Lo 8 or Better

Buy-in: $10,000
Date: June 28 to July 1, 2019
Entries: 193
Prize pool: $1,814,200

Nick Schulman outlasted a player field of 193 to take home the prize money worth $463,670.

A resident of Manhattan, NY, the 34-year-old former billiards pro started to play poker in 2002 when he was 18 years old, and a year later he turned professional.

He recently provides highly-lauded commentary on poker games. His first big gig was with veteran commentator Ali Nejad for the $300,000 buy-in Super High Roller Bowl for CBS Sports in 2016. He received praise from fans and peers for his pleasant personality and fabulous insight. He also won the Broadcaster of the Year award at the 2018 American Poker Awards.

Schulman took down this event still fresh from providing live-stream commentary for Phil Hui's victory in Event #58: $50,000 Poker Players Championship, and he said his time behind the mic allowed him to improve his own gameplay even better, "I don't know where I'd be. Watching some of those guys navigate the high rollers, and preparation for commentating in general, I'm grateful for it. I've watched a lot of poker. To win it right after commentating the $50K kind of makes sense. It's a great reminder: Watch these streams if you're trying to learn. Watch. Analyze. And play along. It's one of the best ways to get better outside of playing."

Final Table Action
Schulman was on fire in the early stages of Day 3 in the 4-day event as the short-stacked players bust one by one.

The final heads-up match between Schulman and Brian Hastings (another multi-bracelet winner from Fort Lauderdale, Florida) went on for a while. Schulman entered heads-up play against Hastings with about a 2:1 lead and they clashed for many hours.

There was a time when Hastings was able to win a huge pot to take the lead, but Schulman landed a double-through a mere few hands later to re-take the lead once again, and he never faltered from then on. He said, "That's the way it goes. We both didn't have too many chips, all things considered. You lose three or four hands in a row, and the swings are big. It's really part of the game. It was a normal heads-up match, I'd say."

The final hand of the event:

Schulman's victory in this event ended a 7-year drought since his last bracelet win back in 2012, and he admits that the games have changed in the recent years, "It's a lot different for me and I think it's a lot different for everybody. The last seven years have seen a tremendous influx of new ideas. I've tried to hang along with the game... and here we are. I'm better, but everybody's better."

This is Schulman's 44th cash score and his third bracelet in the WSOP. He won his first two bracelets in 2009 and 2012 - both were $10,000 Deuce to Seven Draw events. He now has $11,847,606 in total live earnings, according to The Hendon Mob.

rather strange but I don’t know Nick Schulman .... Although he also earns 3 gold bracelet, but nevertheless for me it is an absolutely unknown name .... But now I will know this name already- Nick Schulman is the owner of three gold bracelets. ..is certainly a remarkable achievement for him.

Wow, did I see it right? Did they just took 100k+ from the prizepool as a rake? Wow, I know the WSOP is/was great business for the promoters but it's not that hard to figure out why... Overall it may not be a lot of money but it seems a lot of money

The WSOP 2019 has reached to this number because this series has begun on May 28 and the players still have to play until July 16. I do not know how long a WSOP normally takes, but this is a 50 year anniversary and i guess they made more tournaments. Congratulations to this player for the bracelet won and for his game.

well I dont think that this is such a big rake for this buy in!when you see that buy in is 10 K,then 600 $ isnt big rake!when you play big tournament online,like sunday million,you pay 215 $ and 15 $ is rake,so for 1000 you would pay 75 $ and for 10000 it would 750 $ rake,so this is ok for me!

That's how the system works and every poker series organizer will have to earn money because he makes the location available he has dealers and other employees who work for everything to be good.The amount of money is under 10% for big tournaments and for the smallest 10% or 15%. This is good.
