The Deuce to Seven Lowball No Limit Event #60 found 101 entries all settling into their seats with visions of a gold bracelet and the first place prize dancing through their head. It was never going to be easy, for one thing there were too many pro players in the field, and the hunt was on from some of the world's best poker players.

Nick Schulman won this event in 2009 when he outlasted the then-record field of 96 players and won his first gold bracelet. Schulman is no stranger to tournament poker and big poker cashes, his tournament wins to date come to almost $5,500,000.

The final table had three other gold bracelet winners all trying to be the last man standing - Mike Wattel, John Juanda, and Larry Wright. John Juanda made his fourth consecutive final table appearance in this event when he finished in 6th place.

Mike Wattel and Nick Schulman began heads-up play with Wattel at a very severe chip disadvantage. It only took a few minutes and Schulman raised to put Mike Wattel all-in, Wattel called, and both players took one.

Shulman spread the {9-}{6-}{4-}{3-} and Wattel fanned his monster draw {6-}{4-}{3-}{2-}. Schulman drew the {7-Hearts} and Wattel got the {k-Clubs}. It was over. Mike Wattel took home $181,886 and memories.

Nick Schulman officially became the first two-time winner of the $10,000 Deuce to 7 No Limit Championship. First place paid $294,321 and a gold bracelet - congratulations NICK! video with Nick Schulman:
