Allyen Jaffrey Schulman
Schulman, wife of 2009 WSOP Europe Main Event winner Barry Shulman and step-mother of 2009 WSOP Main Event final tablist Jeff Shulman, has earned over $1.25 million (61 cashes) in her live poker career - with the biggest cash being a win at the 2012 World Series of Poker Senior's Event (4,128 players) for $603,713! Besides being a good poker player, she has been a board member of the Poker Player Alliance and the WIPHoF, and she's known to be one of the world's leading experts on online gambling law.
Deborah Giardina's career in the poker world started 23 years ago in Colorado when she started working as a dealer in a casino. After only six months working as a dealer, she became Assistant Table Games Manager, and after that she became the Cardroom Manager at Lyle Berman's Grand Casino Gulfport in Biloxi, Mississippi. In 1999, she opened the card room for Canterbury Park in Shakopee, Minnesota, and a few years later she became the Director of Poker Operations at the New Wynn Las Vegas Poker Room. As of today, she's the Vice President of Poker Operations at bestbet Jacksonville in Florida.
