Nick Schulman won the USPO Mixed Games title at the Aria Casino in Las Vegas. Schulman outlasted 20 runners at USPO Event #8 $25K 8-Game Mixed Championship for $270,000. In addition, Koray Aldemir took down USPO Event #9 $50K NL for a score worth $738,000.


Two more US Poker Open events are in the books and Sean Winter made another final table. The 2019 USPO is almost complete after the conclusion of Event #8 and Event #9. The big dogs in Vegas threw down for a $50K NL and $25K Mixed-Game affair. When the dust settled, Nick Schulman emerged with a 8-Game Mixed title and $270K in cash and German pro Koray Aldemir binked the $50K for a cool $738K. Aldemir went deep in another event. He took second place in Event #3 when he lost heads-up to Lauren Roberts.

Mixed-games are not easy when you're playing with this particular crowd of high rollers. Nick Schulman has been one of the best for over a decade. He can simply roll up to Vegas and ship the $25K without blinking. This year's USPO Event #8 featured 21 runners. Only the top three places paid out.

Chris Vitch took third place and essentially min-cashed. Brandon Adams found himself heads-up against Nick Schulman. The two slugged it out for the tittle. Adams busted in second place and earned $150K for a runner-up finish. Not too shabby, eh?

Schulman earned $270,000 for the 8-Game win. He went deep in the previous event and final tabled Event #7. Bryn Kenney went on to win that title, but Schulman finished in sixth place for a $120K score.

The penultimate event at this year's USPO was Event #9 $50K NL. This one attracted 41 runners and a prize pool that passed $2 million. Only the final six got a cut of this cheesecake. The final table included David Peters, Alex Foxen, Seth Davies, Ryan Riess, and Koray Aldemir. Not a slouch or slacker in the bunch.

Winter advanced to his fifth final table in nine events. He moved to the top of the USPO leader board with his deep run in Event #9. He made final tables in the first four events and won Event #4. He won nearly $748K, which is top in the USPO, Chidwick is right behind him with $706K in winnings.

Seth Davies hit the bricks first at the final table. He earned $123K for sixth. David Peters got as far as fifth before he busted. Alex Foxen's deep run ended in fourth place, which was worth $205K.

Winter was picked off in third place and he took down another $328K. His bust out set up a heads-up battle between Ryan Riess and German pro Koray Aldemir.

Aldemir knocked out Riess. The American took home $492K for second place. Not too shabby, eh? Aldemir earned $738,000 for first place.
