Nick Schulman Wins 2nd WSOP Deuce-to-Seven Lowball Bracelet

Nick Schulman Wins 2nd WSOP Deuce-to-Seven Lowball BraceletNick Schulman has won WSOP Event#60: $10k NL 2 To 7 Lowball, after besting a field of 101 players over three days on his way to collecting a gold bracelet, and the $294,321 first place prize.
With his WSOP victory in Las Vegas, the New York pro takes his live tournament earnings to an impressive $5,429,338. In addition, Schulman now has two WSOP bracelets to his name, having won the very same event back in 2009. Commenting later on his remarkable achievement, Schulman said:
“It’s a real honor. It’s really a great accomplishment but also a reminder of how tough it is and what needs to go right. It’s just a great feeling and I’m really honored to win it again. I don’t know how some of these guys do it six, seven times.”
The five-card draw game where 2-3-4-5-7 would count as the best/lowest hand combination, saw a whole slew of top pros enter the penultimate event of WSOP 2012. Subsequently, the 101 player field was reduced to 54 players by the end of Day 1, and just 10 players by the finish of Day 2, who then played down to a winner on the final day of play.
Amongst those players cashing in along the way was Marco Traniello in 14th ($19,272), Daniel Negreanu in 13th ($19,272), Jason Mercier in 12th ($19,272), Eric Seidel in 11th ($22,386), and Andy Bloch in 10th ($19,272).
Eventually, Nick Schulman beat out a tough final table which included Bob Bright, John Juanda and Ashton Griffin, to go to heads-up holding a 6 to 1 chip advantage over Mike Wattel. Ten minutes later, and Schulman’s last victim, too,  was dispatched to the rail after Schulman (9-8-6-3) drew a 7 as his final card while Wattel (6-4-3-2) was dealt a K to scupper his WSOP ambitions.
The final table payouts were as follows:
1 Nick Schulman    $294,321
2 Mike Wattel    $181,886
3 George Danzer    $115,295
4 Benjamin Parker $78,088
5 Ashton Griffin $55,482
6 John Juanda    $41,270
7 Bob Bright    $32,080
