Nick Schulman won his third WSOP bracelet
Nick Schulman is used to be the focus of attention at the poker tournaments. The American made his debut in the WPT tournament in 2005, and it was a stunning start of the guy’s career. In the first poker event, he finished first and won $2 167 000. During 15 years of professional career, Nick has received over $11 000 000 of prize money and became a recognizable face in the poker community.

On Monday, another WSOP trophy was added to Shulman’s record. The player got it by winning the PLO8 or Better Championship for $10 000 at the WSOP 2019. He managed to beat a 193-player field and withstand the last battle at the table.

In the final heads-up, the player was opposed by Brian Hastings, who also wanted to win another gold bracelet, but did not succeed. The trophy went to Nick. When journalists asked the winner about the heads-up, Shulman replied the following:
«It was on my mind but at the end of the day, you have the poker decisions and that’s really all we can control so I tried my best to focus on that as much as I can».
Nick was pleased with this situation and hurried to gladden his fans with good news. However, he did it in a pretty strange manner:
