Morristown High School graduate Scott Blumstein (’10) has eight million new reasons to be glad he pursued poker as his profession.
Blumstein won the $8.15 million top prize at the World Series of Poker championship in Las Vegas on Saturday.
“I’m just in utter shock right now,” Blumstein was quoted by NJ.com as saying. “Two weeks ago, I was just a kid who loved to play poker and somehow here I am the champion of the main event. Now I’m just thinking about the past six or seven years, all the events that led up to this. I’m just living a dream.”
