Shulman is a familiar face in the poker world due to his affiliation with Card Player magazine, but his ascension to the late stages of the Main Event doesn't sound quite like a feel-good story.
According to a story on Wicked Chops Poker that surfaced Wednesday, Shulman has plans for the Main Event bracelet should he make it to the Final Table and win in November.
According to Wicked Chops, rumors had been circulating he was planning on renouncing the bracelet if he wins.
When asked about it on break, Shulman replied "If by renounce it you mean throw it in the garbage, then yes."
Shulman, who's cruising through the day after eliminating former chipleader Ludovic Lacay, is now sitting on a sizeable stack and could provide for some interesting TV if he makes the final table.
The Card Player editor has been outspoken about the WSOP's practice of selling exclusive media rights, and the perceived unfair treatment for his publication appears to be the reason for his discontent.
PokerListings.com approached Shulman during the last break, but he declined to comment on anything while he's playing.
We'll keep you posted.
