The Philadelphia Poker Classic started a few weeks ago with a record-setting field size of 735 total entrants in the SugarRush Challenge. A long Day 2 was needed to determine a champion and when the dust finally settled, it was Schuyler Twaddle standing on top after taking part in a four-way deal. Twaddle took home over $24,000 for his finish along with the distinguished title of SugarRush Challenge Champion.
That score is far from Twaddle’s largest, though, as he was able to hit a six-figure score at the Borgata in 2008. Twaddle took down a $5,000 buy-in event for $396,000 and is it would for most players, represents his largest career score. After his big score, Twaddle went a few years without making a mark in the tournament world but started to reemerge last fall when he almost made another SugarRush Challenge final table.
There is plenty of experience that will be needed to navigate this tough main event field and Twaddle has plenty of it and will be a player to keep an eye on.
