Poker Stories is a new, long-form audio series that features casual interviews with some of the game’s best players and personalities. Each episode highlights a well-known member of the poker world and dives deep into their favorite tales both on and off the felt.

Nick Schulman is widely regarded as one of the top all-around players in the game today, regularly competing in 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.

The New York native has been a gambler since he was a teenager, dropping out of high school to play in pool halls before finding poker. Now 32, Schulman lives in Las Vegas and is a regular face in the nosebleed games in Bobby’s Room at Bellagio.

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.
