Congratulations to Nick Schulman, Event #23 Champion ($279,742)

Nick Schulman - Event #23 Champion
Nick Schulman - Event #23 Champion
Nick Schulman has won two World Poker Tour titles. He regularly crushes high-stakes cash games, both live and online. He has over $3.8 million in career tournament earnings and at age 24 is already a veteran on the felt. But until just moments ago, he didn't have a WSOP bracelet.

Schulman was a quiet, steady presence in this tournament, which drew a stacked field and some of poker's biggest personalities. Schulman entered the final table fourth in chips, but surged into the lead when he eliminated Steve Sung in third place, his T-7-5-4-3 just outrunning Sung's T-8-5-4-3. Schulman ended up heads-up with Ville Wahlbeck at a 2-1 chip advantage and never lost the lead.

Major, major props go out to runner-up Ville Wahlbeck, the Finnish sensation that is simply tearing up the WSOP. Now the leader in the Player of the Year Race, Wahlbeck has cashed four times in four $10,000 buy-in events, making three final tables and winning his first bracelet in the $10,000 World Championship Mixed Event.

Congratulations to Nick Schulman on his first WSOP bracelet and a tournament well-played.
