If you’d asked me last week who would’ve been in the Power Rankings lead I would’ve, without a doubt, said: The Main Event winner. In a shocking turn of events, however, it’s the runner-up who grabbed the top spot as he struck a chord with the voting panel! Other names in the Top 10 are…
Nick Schulman is one of poker’s most popular personalities. But he’s more than just a voice. The 34-year-old New York native is also a top-notch talent on the felt, in both cash games and tournaments.
Chances are you’ve heard his soothing voice on PokerGO announcing big events such as the Super High Roller Bowl and Poker Masters along with his sidekick Ali Nejad.
Schulman is the consummate professional, on the felt and in the broadcast booth. Nick reached stardom in poker back in 2005 when he won the WPT World Poker Finals for $2.17 million at age 21. He was the youngest to win on the World Poker Tour at the time.
Just four months later, he finished fourth in a WSOP Circuit event in Atlantic City for $74,495. Although he was already a world-class pool shark who could have made a killing in that industry, it became abundantly clear that poker was his best career path.
Since those first two cashes, he’s won another $8.7 in live tournaments. That includes two WSOP bracelets and a $50,000 Poker Masters event in 2017 for $918,000.
The master of billiards and poker, however, isn’t a tournament grinder, and that makes his Hendon Mob stats all the more impressive. Schulman has spent countless hours grinding the highest stakes cash games in Las Vegas in Bobby’s Room at Bellagio.
In the “Bobby’s Room” episode of “Stories from the Felt” on PokerGO, Schulman explained the camaraderie among the regulars inside this legendary poker room..
“Anyone who plays with each other all the time, even if you don’t really like them, you know, you see them and it’s all love because we do the same stuff together. It’s a bond. It’s a deep bond,” he said.
“We all chose this. We know what stakes we’re playing. We know the kind of personalities that enter this room. There’s going to be some shrewd, ruthless, calculated, cold-blooded decision-making in there. And there’s also going to be some warm times. The whole thing rolls into one.”
