Luke Schwartz has only registered one cash so far at this year's World Series of Poker and that came from Event 45: $50,000 Poker Players Championship where he placed fourth for a nice $406,736 payday.
Today Schwartz battles it out on poker's biggest stage, the Main Event. He is doing well for himself sitting with well over double starting stack. We recently caught up to his table as he was getting involved in a hand.
The flop read and the big blind got the action started in this four way pot by betting out 500. A player in middle position made the call, Schwartz made the call from the hijack, and the button also came along for the ride.
The on the turn saw the big blind and the middle position player check and Schwartz bet out 2,000. The button called and the big blind did the same, while the middle position player released.
The on the river saw a check from the big blind and a bet of 500 from Schwartz. The button made the call while the big blind mucked.
Schwartz flipped over for a pair of kings and the button mucked his cards. Schwartz now climbs to around 65,000 in chips.
