Nick Schulman continues a string of great results after winning the PokerGO Poker Masters Event #5 in Las Vegas. The American has been in great form over the last year, starting with a second, fourth, and fifth in the PGT PokerGO Cup.

He went into the WSOP full of confidence and won his fourth WSOP bracelet in a seven-card-stud event, followed up with a final table in the $10,000 Limit Hold’em Championship.

This was the first $25,000 buy-in event of the Poker Masters and 44 players stepped up to compete, with Schulman banking the top prize of $374,000 from a prize pool of $1,100,000.

The 39-year-old more than had his hands full at a final table that included elite players such as Nick Petrangelo, Brian Rast, and Chris Brewer, but he proved that he is still more player than commentator and will be a threat in all of the remaining events.

Stephen Chidwick Dominates Star-Studded Final Table

Stephen Chidwick has crushed the opposition in the second $25,000 buy-in event at the PokerGO Poker Masters. He arrived at the start of play on the final day with more than half of the chips in play and made the rest look easy.

It took barely more than 90 minutes to convert his advantage and seal victory, adding $400,000 to his record.

The 34-year-old has racked up several final tables since his victory at the High Roller Series at the Aria this summer. Great runs in the few WSOP tournaments he played and at Triton London show that the Brit is a true candidate for the best NL tournament player on the circuit right now.

$4,877,846 worth of prizes has seen him rise to third on the all-time winners list, overtaking former number one Daniel Negreanu.
