Jake Schwartz may say that fellow Main Event competitor and New Yorker Alex Rocha is the best of the best in the field, but Schwartz is no slouch himself. The decorated pro has 18 career five-digit cashes, including a $412,187 cash for finishing in the top 4 of last winter’s WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic $10,000 Main Event. Sitting on just over $1,200,000 in career live earnings, Schwartz is definitely one of the sharks in the pool of the PPC Aruba’s Main Event.
Schwartz has been following the WPT circuit for the last few months, with major cashes in Maryland Live!, Borgata, and Jacksonville. With the World Poker Tour in Montreal and then London over the next few weeks, Schwartz decided to join us on One Happy Island for our yearly capstone event.
Schwartz currently sits with 41,000 in tournament chips.
