Noah Schwartz Wins Event 6 - €3,250 Mixed Max Pot-Limit Omaha (€104,580)
It took just 62 hands for Noah Schwartz to overturn a 2:1 chip deficit and defeat Ludovic Lacay heads up for his first ever bracelet.
Schwartz previously made the final four of the No-Limit Mixed Max a few days ago but this is the first time he's made it the distance.
Earlier today the American knocked out Jyri Merivirta in a fairly quick battle while Lacay dispatched Vitaly Lunkin when he called the Russian's big bluff on the river.
Hand #32 proved the turning point of the heads-up battle. Lacay had check-raised for 251,000 on the turn of a 9♣ 8♥ 5♥ 4♠ board with Schwartz making the call to create a pot for over half the chips in play. The 5♠ came on the river and the Frenchman quickly folded when Schwartz moved all in.
After this, the heads-up match was always going to be an uphill struggle for Lacay as Schwartz was the more experienced player. Lacay picked up €64,800 for his second place while Schwartz will be €104,580 better off when he looks at his bank statement tomorrow.
