Contemplating the adage, “like father, like son“, I wonder if Jeff Shulman is following in his father’s footsteps and ask myself, “Is Jeff Shulman destined to win the 2009 WSOP Main Event in Vegas?” What’s fueling this father-son duo to burst into the limelight with such poker prowess in 2009? Is it the dis from the WSOP? Is this a case of … “Don’t get angry…Get even!”
I don’t know, but I do know that Jeff Shulman has hired Phil Hellmuth to coach him…and, it is fun to think about… a father and son winning majors in the same year! Sure adds to the excitement and anticipation.
