Nick Schulman wins third career bracelet in $10,000 PLO8 or Better Championship

The PokerGO commentator and high-stakes outlasted several bracelet winners on the final table to take home the $463,670 top prize.

"I’m better but everybody’s better.”

The 2019 World Series of Poker Event #65: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship attracted a total of 193 players, who created a prize pool of $1,814,200. The best 29 players walked away showing a profit of $5,237 thanks to the $15,237 min-cash.

This was Nick's first bracelet in the last seven years. The game has been evolving pretty fast and only players, who improve with it can manage to stay on the top, as Nick explained after his win: “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 and I’ve tried to kind of hang along with the game and here we are. I’m better but everybody’s better.”

Indeed, Schulman managed to be the last man standing in a rock-solid field, and final table, with guys like high-roller specialist Connor Drinan (10th; $35,950), former runner-up of the event, Michael McKenna (7th; $58,918), WSOP Main Even champ, Joe Hachem (3rd; $201,041) and mixed-game specialist Brian Hastings (2nd; $286,570) included.

Nick is a popular commentator on the PokerGO streaming service (where the WSOP events are available exclusively) and he says commentating on the finals of the $50,000 Poker Player's Championship right before this event, had helped him a lot.

Heads-up against Brian Hastings

“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.”

Schulman now stands with a total live tournament earnings of $11,847,606. You can watch the most exciting WSOP events exclusively on PokerGO, where you can also sharpen your game, just like Nick Schulman does.
