Now I'm not too sure. Here are some additional quotes from him that ESPN had on their poker section:
-- No player at this final table will inspire more debate than Shulman, the editor of Card Player magazine. Shulman has stirred controversy with his claim that he will throw the bracelet in the garbage if he wins it. "It has nothing to do with [Card Player no longer having exclusive rights to WSOP coverage]," the 34-year-old Las Vegas
native said. "It's about my lack of respect for the WSOP and the management here and what they've done to the players. That said, I still wouldn't wear it if I was best friends with them. When I had a chance to win years ago, I said I wouldn't wear it. I'm shocked that people wear those ugly things."
"Jeff generally says and does what he means, so if he says something, I don't doubt he's going to do it," best friend Adam Schoenfeld said. "I just see this as a professional wrestling heel turn ,and Jeff's just gonna be the bad guy, so it doesn't hurt anyone."
"If I win, I'll never play at the Rio or WSOP again," Shulman said. "If I win, I'll never play poker again."
So his friend kind of validated what I said earlier. I find it funny though that he says he'll never play at the Rio/WSOP/Poker ever again if he wins. So he will if he doesn't win?
Yeah, "Happy" is the perfect nickname for this guy.
