Steve Schult

As managing editor of PlayOhio, Steve Schult will keep tabs on everything related to the Ohio gambling industry. But Schult was a fixture in the poker world before heading up coverage of the Buckeye State’s betting industry.

The New York native spent most of his childhood on the baseball field. Once he realized his dream of pitching in the big leagues wouldn’t be a reality, he set his sights on becoming the next Buster Olney. However, like most high school seniors in the early 2000s, Schult and his friends watched Chris Moneymaker win the World Series of Poker. After some low-stakes home games and numerous viewings of the cult classic “Rounders,” Schult cemented his path to the gambling world.

He earned his bachelor’s in print journalism from Marist College while pitching on the school’s baseball team. But afterward, instead of covering baseball, he began working for media outlets covering high-stakes poker tournaments. He spent a decade writing solely about poker before adding the broader U.S. gambling market to his beat in 2019 for Card Player Media.
