Barry Shulman used to play poker in the 1960s, but he had no time to play seriously, being busy with real estate work in the Seattle area.

"In the past, the typical article was about how to increase your hourly earnings. In the future, we'll show what the best players do outside of poker. We want someone who has played only one of two times to read it all the way through. There is no better story than someone who invests $20 and walks away with $1 million."
