Luke Schwartz Lands in Trouble Again at World Open V

Luke Schwartz Lands in Trouble Again at World Open V

Tuesday, 13 October 2009

Luke Schwartz, sandwichless and desolate, left the European Poker Tour Main Event with a new ban over his head. After a presumable visit to Subway in order to cheer himself up, the online high stakes cash player sauntered off to the PartyPoker World Open V.

He had some problems.

Schwartz was flagged as banned on the casino’s system, meaning that his recent sandwich blowup has led to not just a ban from The Hilton Metropole but a UK-wide casino ban. Schwartz arrived for his heat at the PartyPoker World Open V at the Palm Beach, Mayfair, only to be informed that he was banned.

An onlooker said: “They wouldn’t let FullFlush in and there wasn’t a sandwich in sight. We thought that only an individual casino group had banned him but it now seems to have come to light that he is banned from every casino in the United Kingdom. Schwartz went mental at reception which didn’t help matters.”

Eventually, the casino relented and allowed Schwartz in to play as long as he was allotted an escort from tournament supervisors who would ensure his good behaviour.

It proved no obstacle though as ‘_Fullflush_’ defeated a table that included Yevgeniy Timoshenko and November Niner James Akenhead to seal a place in Thursday’s final.

“We hope that Luke will be able to take his seat at the final table, but we have no guarantees as yet. In retrospect, perhaps Luke should have paid for the egg sandwich at the EPT –- imagine if the casino ban costs him the chance of winning the $250,000 first prize? He could end up with serious egg on his face," said a PartyPoker spokesperson.
