Quote: “There is no tougher place to play than on the East Coast. I definitely feel like I’m in this position because I’m from New Jersey. I mean, look who won Colossus, Tom Cannuli, the list goes on and on. It’s no coincidence. I think I’m here because I got pushed here, it’s just Darwinism, survival of the fittest.” — Scott Blumstein (July 15, 2017 PokerCentral interview).
