Schwartz Now Has Four SCOOP Titles To His NamePublished on May 23rd, 2015 9:37 pm EST
Luke "lb6121" Schwartz (yes, THAT Luke Schwartz) took down his second SCOOP (Spring Championship of Online Poker) bracelet of 2015 last evening after winning Event #40-M ($215 NLHE Turbo Zoom).
Schwartz, who is known for his outlandish antics and who famously feuded with Tom "durrrr" Dwan a number of years ago, continued to prove that he is, in fact, a talented poker player when he navigated through a field of over 2,000 players to take down the $215 NLHE Turbo Zoom event on Pokerstars last night. The win was no easy feat, as Schwartz had to navigate past the likes of Jon "apestyles" van Fleet and Jens "Fresh_Oo_D" Lakemeier to seal the victory.
The tournament ended up with 2,324 entries, which created a total prize pool of $464,800.00. There was no final table deal, which meant that Schwartz was able to walk away with $74,368.00.
As mentioned, this was the second title of the 2015 SCOOP series for Schwartz, as he also took down the $1,050 Pot Limit Five-Card Omaha Hi-Lo Six-Max event for $69,268 (Schwartz and the eventual second place finisher "TheHood" ended up cutting a deal while heads up). Combine this with his previous wins and Schwartz (also known as __fullflush1__ on Full Tilt Poker) now has four SCOOP titles to his name.
Here is what Schwartz had to say about his most recent victory on Twitter:
"I come out to play when scoops on #shipit"
