World Series Of Poker Won By Rocker

Steve Albini recently won almost $200,000 at the World Series of Poker.

The Nirvana producer says he loves playing poker but wouldn’t be in it if it weren’t for the money.

He explained, “Everything in my life comes in pieces, in parts. Poker is one part of my life. So when I’m playing poker, I try to commit to it. I try to take it seriously. I try to make sure I devote the attention to it that it deserves as an occupation. But it’s only part of my year. I only play tournaments at the World Series of Poker. I play cash games informally in Chicago. It’s a part of my livelihood, but it’s not my profession.“

Albini is also a musician who plays in Shellac.
