Nick Schulman is widely regarded as one of the top all-around players in the game today, regularly competing in some of the biggest cash games around. Although he doesn’t play a lot of tournaments these days, he’s done quite well in the past, racking up $8.3 million along with a World Poker Tour title and two World Series of Poker bracelets.

Highlights from this interview include pool hustlers, NYC underground poker games, blowing through seven figures, staying a student of the game, losing big to some banker, shooting expensive free throws, gangsta rap vs. classical music and why live reads are still important.
