First World Series of Poker bracelet win by an old-school pro.Remember Luke "__FullFlush1__" Schwartz?

If you followed the online poker world previous to "Black Friday" taking place, you are no doubt familiar with Luke Schwartz.

Schwartz, who hails from London, England, quickly made a name for himself in the poker world due to his trash talking and blunt analysis of other players. If you search "poker blowups" on Youtube, you will surely come across at least a few clips of Schwartz during his appearances on shows such as the Party Poker Premier League.

Luke's big break in the poker world came when he took down the Sunday Million in 2007. After that score, Schwartz returned to his first love, cash games, where he ended up battling the likes of Tom "durrrr" Dwan and "Ziigmund" on Full Tilt Poker.

In fact, Schwartz was rumored to be one of the participants in the "Durrrr Challenge", though that obviously never came to pass.

Schwartz had less than friendly things to say about many of his opponents, and he quickly drew a reputation for his outbursts and outlandish behavior.


Much to his credit, Schwartz has seemingly calmed down over the past 7-8 years and has continued to grind.

Following a 18th place finish in the $10k Dealers Choice Championship earlier this summer, Schwartz put everything together and took down the $10k Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw Championship for $273,336 earlier this week.

This was the first bracelet of Schwartz's career and gives him over $1.73 million in total live tournament cashes. This goes along with Schwartz's considerable success online, which includes victories in the Sunday Million and multiple SCOOP bracelets.

This was the second largest "live" tournament cash of Luke's career, as he finished in 4th place in the $50,000 Poker Players Championship in 2012 for $406.736.


Luke's bracelet win was even more impressive given the level of talent that he was playing against. There were no weak players in the field, and Schwartz had to battle hard to take down the win.

Schwartz is still quite young and has a long career still ahead of him - it'll be interesting to see where he goes from here.
