it's looking better and better... Congrats to Nick Schulman he won the 2005 WPT World Poker Finals at the Foxwoods Resort & Casino, winning $2,142,000, a Wampum belt (as a trophy), and a $25,500 seat into the WPT World Championship at Bellagio in the spring.

The sub-culture of poker is married to the sub-culture of pool. It's an individual sport that a pool player already has experience with (being an individual competitor). The money/cash play is again another thing that most top pool player already have a good handle on.

So, if you're good with numbers and already play cards, pool players should put some time into the booming sport of poker.

... but don't give up your day job.

BTW Fred, I can accept when people call pool a sport, but how in God's name can people call poker a sport? For that matter, how in God's name can people call Texas Hold'em poker? It's more closely aligned with that old bar room game "Liar's Dice".

I can't decide whether I should be green with envy or just shake my head in wonder. Offhand, I'd say he made the right move (just a guess...)

Nick is an amazing talent. Congratulations!

Everyone in New York is very proud of Nicky. He worked harder at this than most people do at their jobs. Truly a 24/7 endeavor.

For the last two years, Nicky has been feared in the New York clubs and even moreso in the online rooms. Nobody that knew him from either of those realms is surprised at all by his recent success.

He has really grown up into a smart, mature professional that has made everyone that knows him very, very proud.

Great job, Kid.

Cornerman the only difference is that in the old days you couldn't trust a poolplayer with a deck of cards in his hands. Most of them weren't great card players they were great cheats.####

Nice followup for Nick taking 4th in the WSOP circuit event in Atlantic City and winning another $75k.
