Noah Schwartz Joins the WPT Champions Club

It was a case of fourth time lucky for Noah Schwartz as he finally turned a World Poker Tour (WPT) final table appearance into a title in Jacksonville, Florida.

For fans of Betfair poker, Schwartz was starting to become a familiar face on the WPT final table after making appearances in Borgata, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles.

All three losses were softened by the delivery of six-figure cashes but this will be a sweet moment for Schwartz as he captured his first major title.

477-players ponied up the entry fee to participate in this four-day tournament, and at the end of the combined Day One’s it was Joe Elpayaa out in front with 924,000 chips; Schwartz was in second-spot with 916,000. 

The penultimate day’s play saw the field shrink to the final table of six players. Out in front with an incredible 44% of the chips was Schwartz. 

This is how the final table shaped up:

Seat 1: Lee Markholt – 1,720,000
Seat 2: Byron Kaverman – 1,075,000
Seat 3: Ryan Hartmann – 1,400,000
Seat 4: Hans Winzeler – 1,965,000
Seat 5 – Brian Senie – 1,865,000
Seat 6 – Noah Schwartz – 6,255,000

It was a stacked final table with Lee Markholt aiming for his second WPT title and Byron Kaverman making his second WPT final table (he also missed out in 7th in Jacksonville earlier in the year). 

But it was always going to be an uphill battle for anyone other than Schwartz. That chip lead was a monster and after five-hours of play Schwartz had defeated Byron Kaverman heads-up to secure his first-major title and his largest price to date: $402,970.

Final Placings:

1: Noah Schwartz – $402,970
2: Byron Kaverman – $236,592
3: Ryan Hartmann – $153,403
4: Hans Winzeler – $106,848
5: Brian Senie – $77,083
6: Lee Markholt – $61,819
