WASSUP '09: Schulman Sinks Sung And Wastes Wahlbeck
June 15, 2021

Nick Schulman, a well known poker pro with more than $3.5 million in tournament cashes, scored his first World Series of Poker bracelet Friday night, when he took down Event #23- the $10,000 buy-in No-Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball World Championship.

Before successfully crossing himself off the notorious "best players without a bracelet list," Schulman first had to get through a tough final table that held among others WSOP-Europe Main Event champion John Juanda, feared cash game player David Benyamine and two recent bracelet winners- Ville Wahlbeck and PokerRoad's Steve Sung.

Of all the players at the final table, it was the man currently listed as #1 on the 2009 WSOP Player of the Year leader board that gave Schulman the most trouble but eventually even he had to fall thanks to a "perfect seven" (7-5-4-3-2), Schulman's final hand in the event.

For outlasting the entire 96 person starting field, Schulman earned a top prize worth $279,742.

The final table finish positions for Event #23 were as follows:

1st.  Nick Schulman- $279,742

2nd.  Ville Wahlbeck- $172,864

3rd.  Steve Sung- $112,042

4th.  John Juanda- $75,964

5th.  Archie Karas- $53,783

6th.  Vince Musso- $39,697

7th.  David Benyamine- $30,492

8th.  Michael Binger- $24,545
