Justin 'Stealthmunk' Schwartz on 'Life Upswing', Deep in WSOP Main

Published on 13 July 2015 by Pokerlistings 6700

Justin "Stealthmunk" Schwartz is a polarizing character in the poker world and now he's in the final 36 at the 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event. We spoke to Schwartz and he said he's on a life upswing right now, and that with the cash he's already guaranteed he's looking at the rest of this Main Event as a freeroll. In addition to a shot at the November Nine and a potential $7.68 million prize, Schwartz also has a big prop bet in the works against Daniel Negreanu who's also still alive in the Main Event. Schwartz and Negreanu will play $100/$200 PLO, $100,000 deep. The second part of the bet involves Schwartz getting down to 22% body fat in one year. If Schwartz wins the poker bet and loses the weight loss, the overall $100,000 bet will be a push. The same will happen if he loses at poker but wins at weight loss. To win the $100k Schwartz will have to win at poker and reach his weight loss goal. For now, however, Stealthmunk is focusing on keeping it together as we get closer to this year's November Nine.
