Poker Stories: Quarantine Special With Jason Koon, Nick Schulman, and Bryn Kenney

Read more

In this special episode of Poker Stories, we revisit three of our most popular early guests to catch up on what's happened in their lives over the last three years.  

Jason Koon was first featured on the podcast in December of 2016. At the time, the West Virginia native was coming off of his best year ever on the live tournament circuit, and had amassed $6.5 million in career earnings. Now, Koon has solidified himself as one of the top players on the high roller circuit, and has climbed to no. 9 on the all-time money list with $31 million.  

Nick Schulman's episode of the podcast came out in April of 2017. The high-stakes cash game grinder has since added a handful of high roller titles in limited tournament appearances, and even added his third World Series of Poker bracelet in the 2019 summer series. The New York pool hustler turned card shark is also regarded as one of poker's most popular commentators.

Bryn Kenney was just a modest 15th on the all-time tournament earnings rankings with $17 million in cashes when his episode aired in the Spring of 2017. He was confident he would some day be no. 1, however, and his premonition turned out to be correct when he won the biggest prize in poker history for $20.6 million. Kenney now has a $7 million lead over Justin Bonomo after his historic high roller run with $57 million total.  

Highlights from this episode include feeling the same after $25 million, high-stakes birthday parties in Thailand, Dale Earnhardt Jr. at Cracker Barrel, the exhaustion of telling people you play poker, hanging with Isaac Newton, the ups and downs of gambling life, nobody asks dentists their salary, David Oppenheim the mixed game GOAT, being a reluctant shoplifter, a time of self improvement, poker players are EV hunters, why you don't need a seven-figure watch, playing with your back against the wall, Vin Diesel at the grocery store, and why Uncut Gems was both amazing and terrible.

The Grid 017 ft. Nick Schulman – Jack-Four Offsuit

Read more

Three-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner, World Poker Tour Champion and renowned poker commentator Nick Schulman enters the GRID to click off a challenging combo, jack-four offsuit. Nick played the fateful hand in a New York City homegame about a decade ago, where the stakes soared to 400/800 and night turned to morning. As the three-bet pot against “Brooklyn Issac” bloated on all streets, the hand took a dramatic twist.

Nick and Jennifer also talk about what he misses about New York cash, his commentary inspirations and how the GRID is a tool to test your own visual capacity in poker.

You can follow Nick at https://twitter.com/NickSchulman and find his commentary on pokergo.com.

Now that jack-four offsuit has been covered on thepokergrid.com, 152 combos remain.

Poker Stories: Nick Schulman

Read more

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.

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.

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.
