Winner's Reaction

Following his victory, Schulman admitted that his cash game days are mostly over for now as he would prefer to focus on his four-year-old daughter, but he still plans on playing tournaments.

"Four [bracelets] means a lot. It's not lost on me that I've accomplished some things, and I'm still here. It means a lot," Schulman said.

"I love Stud," Schulman said when asked how he feels about the game. "It's probably my favorite game, and I've always kind of thought it was my best game. I grew up playing it."

Schulman, who navigated the final table with a cigar in hand, said it was an homage to the old school.

"I just decided to throw it back for the Stud," Schulman said. "An know — let's play fast and have some fun."

Looking forward, Schulman said he plans to put in more volume this WSOP.

"I'd love to win two [bracelets]," Schulman said. "Who doesn't wanna, you know, just rattle off bracelets and win Player of The Year and all that? I just wanna stay focused."

Final Day Action

The day began as an unofficial final table of nine and saw Bruce Levitt, who came in as one of the short stacks, get eliminated within the first level of the day to reach the official final table of eight.

Tab Thiptinnakon and Tim Frazin were both knocked out early on, despite Frazin finding two double-ups on the final table before his elimination.

Schulman began building some momentum after eliminating DJ Buckley and then doubling up through the then chip-leader John Monnette six-handed.

Shaun Deeb
Shaun Deeb

Shaun Deeb fell short of earning his sixth WSOP bracelet after getting all in with two pair and losing to Monnette's wheel on seventh street.

From that point on, Schulman continued to add to his stack and ended up eliminating both Monnette and Hojeong Lee in fourth and third place, respectively.

Schulman began his heads-up battle against Hasdal with a nearly two-to-one chip advantage but would end up in a grueling battle that saw Hasdal double up through Schulman several times. At one point, Hasdal battled his way into a more than two-to-one chip lead over Schulman, but Schulman pulled back to nearly even after winning a large pot that saw Hasdal fold on seventh street.

Andrew Hasdal
Andrew Hasdal

Hasdal's stack continued to trend downward, and he got all in again versus Schulman as a big underdog. However, Hasdal made a runner-runner full house against Schulman on sixth and seventh street respectively to stay alive once more.

Not to be denied, Schulman battled back and managed to whittle Hasdal down with ever-escalating antes and limits forcing the action. Despite his valiant effort, Hasdal met his end after getting all in with a flush and straight draw against Schulman's two pair that ended up becoming a full house on seventh street to secure Schulman's victory.
