Incredibly, the 30-year-old real estate investor from Philadelphia was able to rebuild his stack, make it to the final table and ultimately emerge with the title and the first-place prize of $341,486.
Schwartz took control of the final table, holding roughly 70 percent of the chips in play at one point during four-handed action. Tran kept up his comeback by knocking out Ray Qartomy in fourth place ($73,734). He followed that up by eliminating Kelly Minkin in third place with $146,973.

Schwartz called again and the 8♠️completed the board on the river. Tran bet 1,175,000. Schwartz decided to turn small pair into a bluff and moved all-in for 4,080,000.

and was able to get all-in against Schwartz’s 9♦️9♣️after a series of raises preflop. Tran’s hand held up and he took more than a 3-to-1 advantage.
