Jeff Shulman is the editor of Card Player Magazine, a poker player based in Las Vegas, and the son of Barry Shulman, CEO of Card Player magazine.Jeff was a former real estate investor and attended the University of Washington.
Born in 1975 in Seattle, Washington, Jeff started playing poker in the 3rd grade and practiced his skills on his friends at summer camp. His father also gave him a lot of poker advice. Jeff moved to Las Vegas in the late 90s to help his father with the CardPlayer business. Together, Jeff and his father grew the magazine from a niche product to a top industry magazine in just a few years. Although he didn't move to Vegas to play poker, he played poker on the side.
He reached the final table and finished 7th in the 2000 WSOP main event (eventually won by Chris Ferguson), winning $146,700. He also cashed in the 2003 main event (31st place).
He also won a tournament in the Ultimate Poker Challenge's first season, and made the final table of that season's grand final. In 2006, Shulman appeared on Poker Superstars III finishing in the Elite Eight.
Although most people think of Jeff as just Barry Shulman's son, his poker accomplishments have proved these people wrong. Here is an impressive stat that most people don't know about him - he has finished in the top 7 twice in the Main Event.
Although he consistently cashes in major poker tournaments, his primary focus is working on growing CardPlayer. He recently expressed his disappointment with how Harrah's now runs the World Series, saying that "it used to be run by people who loved and really cared about poker, and had the players in mind, first and foremost."
Shulman is married with two children. As of 2009, his total live tournament winnings are $3,257,467.
