Nick Schulman came into the final table fourth in chips, but chipped up nicely with back-to-back eliminations of Victoria Livschitz and Chris Brewer in fifth and fouth place, respectively.

The short-stacked Livschitz committed her seven big blinds with ace-four suited and Schulman found pocket nines in the big blind. The pair held and Schulman was on his way.

A little while later, Brewer called all in for 14 big blinds with ace-queen and was leading Schulman’s nine-eight suited. Schulman paired on the turn and Brewer couldn’t catch up.

After Brian Rast was eliminated in third place, Schulman began heads-play against Nick Petrangelo slightly trailing in chips.

The two decided to double the blinds, resulting in a quick match. Schulman took the lead on the first hand before ultimately closing it out.

Both picked up an ace, Schulman raised all in with his chip-leading stack holding ace-jack, and Petrangelo called all in for 11 big blinds with ace-four. Schulman improved to trip jacks to secure the victory.

Nick Schulman took home a staggering $374,000 first place prize, which was also his first cash of the 2023 Poker Masters.

Chidwick had an overwhelming chip lead to begin the six-handed streamed final table with nearly 60% of the chips in play.

He went to work immediately, opening nearly every hand, and eliminated short-stacked Chino Rheem in sixth place.

Darren Elias fell next, also at the hands of Chidwick. Chris Brewer exited a little while later, although it was Alex Foxen and not Chidwick taking out the short-stacked Brewer. Foxen then ran ace-king suited into Chidwick’s pocket aces.

Heads-up play between Chidwick and Sam Soverel began with Chidwick holding more than an 8-to-1 lead.

Soverel closed the gap, but only slightly. Ultimately, the chips got in with Chidwick holding a flush against Soverel’s two pair. Chidwick held up and secured the dominant victory.
