He is also an ardent poker player. He first started playing professionally in 2004 when he joined a Heavenly Hold’em tournament in Los Angeles. There was a $1,500 buy-in and it was of the 80 no limit format. He ended up coming in 8th place, earning $7,530.
Nick Vertucci has also played professional poker in Las Vegas, Nevada. This included in June 2016 when he was in the 47th World Series of Poker event. This one also had a $1,500 buy-in and the game he participated in was No Limit Hold’em Millionaire Maker. He ended up walking away with $2,531.
More recently, Nick Vertucci participated in the Live at the Bike event that was held at Las Vegas’ Bicycle Casino on August 17, 2018. This was a $100/$200 No-Limit Hold’em Big Blind Ante game. In addition to Nick Vertucci, the lineup was Dan Zack, Gary Raina, and Garrett Adelstein.
At this Live at the Bike event, they introduced an action clock. Each player had just 30 seconds to make a decision. The action clock has become a popular thing to use in tournament poker but it hadn’t been used in cash games before.
The players were pretty excited about the action clock. Joey Ingram said he thought it would be a game changer while poker professional Phil Galfond remarked that they work really well in tournaments so it was worth exploring their use in cash games. The commentator for the game, Johnnie Moreno, said that he was really interested in how it would play out but viewers should have an improved experience
