Barb Throwing Shulman at WSOP

The nine players who made it to the World Series of Poker’s main event final table are using the four-month break to sign sponsorship deals, relax or improve their game. Card Player magazine editor Jeff Schulman is spending his time throwing bombs at tournament owner Harrah’s Entertainment.

Mr. Schulman, 34, caused a stir by saying on his poker blog that he would “throw the World Series of Poker champion bracelet in the trash can.” He did not back down after settling down at the last table. Shulman, who will rank fourth in the chip count when play resumes at the Rio Olympics on Nov. 7, said he will auction off bracelets for charity or giveaways from a poker tournament sponsored by Card Player.

In a recent article on the magazine’s website, Shulman continued to protest against Hara and the poker world series. “It used to be run by people who loved and really cared about Poker, and most of all, with the players in mind,” Schulman said. “That mission was scuttled by some executives.”

Schulman’s complaint concerns the 500 players who were unable to enter on the final day of the opening round of the main event because 2,809 seats were sold out. He also wailed about players’ admission fees and Hara’s cuts due to “misguided decisions.” Shulman may raise some legitimate issues. But he is the wrong messenger.

The card player lost the tournament’s media rights to Bluff, a rival magazine, in 2006. However, Shulman said that was not the cause of his anger. Insiders said Bluff was paying Hara more money. 스포츠토토

With 57 events leading to a record 60,785 entries, World Series poker has grown from its earliest days on Vinion’s horse hooves. “It’s no longer just a small tournament with 10 tables in one room,” said World Series of Poker spokesperson Seth Palanski. “It’s a much bigger challenge to run a tournament of this size.”

World Series poker commissioner Jeffrey Pollack, the subject of Schulman’s wrath, turned his attention away from Schulman and worked to congratulate the other eight finalists, including seven-time bracelet winner Phil Ivey and logger chip leader Darvin Moon from rural Maryland.
