Nick Schulman Wins Fifth World Series of Poker Bracelet in High Roller Event

Nick Schulman Claims Fifth World Series of Poker Bracelet in High Roller Event

Nick Schulman became a five-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner last night after taking down the $25,000 Six-Handed High Roller event, earning himself his second-biggest tournament cash of $1,667,842. By dominating at the final table he secured himself another win on this trip around.

After winning an early flip with QQ against Noel Rodriguez’s AK that provided him a substantial chip lead, 39-year-old Peter Heise went on to eliminate five of seven opponents for his inaugural bracelet in non-mixed game event. According to Heise himself, getting into his groove put him firmly in control at the final table.

Schulman described his hand as being incredible: “Holding there felt amazing; every tournament player has some residual trauma from participating, so holding there felt truly incredible. To have one chip leader was pretty unique and very special; being lucky enough to find myself there allowed for “golden lanes”, where opponents couldn’t really do much even though they knew you were playing games – an ideal spot at a final table!

Schulman had set his eyes on winning five bracelets; Rodriguez only wanted his first. Instead, he established his lifetime best cash total by winning second place for $1,111,897 prize and had previously achieved this result at World Poker Tour’s $10,000 championship in December where he finished 19th for an astounding sum of $236,300!

As his starting stack had fallen to two big blinds following Schulman’s early victory, this feat seemed all but impossible.

This year’s tournament drew 318 entries — 17 more than in 2016. They generated an amazing prize pool worth $7,473,000 with Shaun Deeb as six-time bracelet holder and 2018 World Series of Poker Player of the Year placed eighth for $153,302, Ben Heath cashing $2.2 Million Tournament Cashes place fifth at $376,762.

Schulman won his four bracelets through mixed-game events beginning with 2009 when he took home the $10,000 2-7 Lowball Draw Championship and repeating as champion two years later in 2012. Schulman earned his third WSOP Bracelet during 2019 in the $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better event while adding bracelet number four at $1500 Seven Card Stud event last year.

He won a World Series of Poker Circuit ring via an online tournament of $1,000 in 2022 and his total cash wins reach $8 Million, moving closer towards $20 Million thanks to this win.

Schulman achieved his biggest tournament score at a $10,000 World Poker Tour event at the WPT finals in 2005 – 267,500 to be exact – winning third-place for $187,820 at 2019 WSOP 100k Buy In Event (100KBI Event). This is his third cash worth over a $1 Million!

Schulman follows Scott Seiver and Robert Mizrachi by winning five World Series of Poker bracelets this series.
