Jeff Shulman Turns To Hellmuth For FInal Table Advice

Jeff Shulman will be utilising the advice of long term friend and 11 time bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth to help steer him towards World Series Of Poker glory in November.
Shulman is president of the hugely popular Card Player magazine which has a monthly circulation figure of around 300,000 and he is no stranger to poker success with live tournament winnings of over $2,600,000. His past achievements in the Main Event are impressive too with a 7th place finish at WSOP 2000, 31st in 2003 and now in 2009 guaranteed a 9th place finish or better.
This time round Shulman will be hoping that he can go all the way and pick up his first WSOP bracelet with the help of good friend Phil Hellmuth. Shulman explained:
“The simplest reason why I’m doing this — I want to win, and I think it will help. I turned on the TV and I was watching Tiger Woods or something, and I realized — every single player has a coach. No matter how good or bad my game is, it can always get better.”
Shulman conceded that he was not the best player at the final table, had made several bad calls during the tournament and was now looking to iron out some of the flaws in his game before the big day arrived. He said Phil Hellmuth was his ideal choice of professional coach not only because of his impressive record in the competition, but because they share a similar style of play that would make his advice all the more applicable to his own game. He continued:
“Phil just has such a way of thinking about winning that I knew he would be a great resource. We’re going to talk about final-table strategy, analyze the tapes, and work on my own play.”
The pair now intend to proceed with the coaching initially through Skype communication and then lead up to “a three- or four-day boot camp in October.” Despite his past successes in the competition, Shulman is hoping that Hellmuth’s coaching will finally give him the edge he needs to realise his dream and win an elusive WSOP bracelet. There are certain areas where Shulman won’t be seeking advice from Hellmuth though, “Let’s just say I won’t take lessons from him on how to treat your opponents or how to avoid going on tilt,” he quipped.
