Notable Information

Nick Schulman has been in poker for most of his adult life. Some now know him as a poker commentator, but he has always been just as comfortable at the tables. And on Monday, the first day of July, he showed it by winning the $10K PLO-8 Championship.

For his first bracelet in seven years but third one of his career, Shulman acknowledged the work it took to get to this one. “The last seven years have seen a tremendous influx of new ideas, and I’ve tried to kind of hang along with the game and here we are. I’m better, but everybody’s better.”

Through focus and solid poker decisions, Shulman beat a tough opponent in Brian Hastings to win.
