SCHWARTZ TAKES PART IN POKER EVENT

Ylon Schwartz was seen playing poker in a recent high profile event. Although names like Berry Johnston, Tommy Vedes, Allen Kessler, Tom McEvoy, Ylon Schwartz and WSOPC National Championship points leaders Brett Schwertley and Kevin Calenzo were scattered amongst the field.

The $1,600 event’s massive field played down to 174 players on Day 1 and 14 on Day 2 with the final table set just a few hours into the third day.

After the overnight leader busted, Nguyen took a sizeable lead into the final and never really looked back, eventually getting to heads up with a 7:1 chip lead over Traci Brown, who finished 11th in the WSOP Ladies event this summer.
