Noah Schwartz Wins 2013 WSOPE Mixed Max PLO

Noah Schwartz Wins 2013 WSOPE Mixed Max PLOUS pro Noah Schwartz has won the 2013 WSOPE Event #6: €3,250 Mixed Max Pot-Limit Omaha, after besting a field of 127 players over three days on his way to capturing his first WSOP bracelet, as well as collecting the €104,580 ($141,356) first place prize.
Following his remarkable victory at the Casino Barrière de Enghien, in France, Noah Schwartz, commented: “It’s eluded me for a long time. To be able to actually hold the bracelet in my hands and know that it’s mine, it’s mindboggling. I remember growing up and seeing all of these guys on TV winning bracelets and it was always a dream of mine. Now that I have one, it’s one of the best feelings ever.”
The €3,250 Mixed Max PLO event drew some of the best players in the game to create a prize pool worth €373,380 ($504,684). Amongst the notables names then booking a cash was such pros as Daniel Shak in 14th (€6,700), Padraig Parkinson in 11th (€6,700), Matthew Ashton in 9th (€10,500), and Phil Laak in 7th (€16,000).
Following Vitaly Lunkin’s exit in 3rd (€34,500), Noah Schwartz then faced off against tough French opponent Ludovic Lacay for the title, and as Schwartz commented, later:
“He had a 2-to-1 chiplead, so I kind of felt like the pressure was off me. This time I wasn’t the big favorite, he had more chips and he’s a very talented player, so I felt that if I finished second I’d be a bit disappointed, but I wasn’t favored to win.”
Nevertheless, Schwartz was able to soon overcome his initial chip deficit to eventually claim the bracelet and consign Ludovic Lacay to a runner-up finish worth €64,600.
“For me, to actually close the deal is really gratifying. Poker is very streaky. When you’re playing well and you’re confident, things seem to come in bunches,” explained Schwartz after the win.
