Early Life and Career

Appleman grew up in Long Island, where he was strong in both athletics and academics. He received his undergraduate degree in Mathematics from Ohio State University where he was a member of Alpha Epsilon Pi. He also earned an MBA in statistics from Case Western University.

He later moved to Washington, D.C., working as a coordinator in a drug rehabilitation clinic. He also taught Math in public schools.

Poker

Appleman used money he had made from sports betting to fund his early poker career, and he began playing at the World Series of Poker (WSOP) in 1975. He was a regular player at the Mayfair Club in New York City where he played against some of the now very famous and successful poker players like Dan Harrington, Howard Lederer, and Erik Seidel.

In his over 30-year career as a professional poker player, he has won four bracelets and has finished in the money of the $10,000 no limit hold'em main event in 1987 (8th), 1989 (22nd), 1990 (20th), and 2000 (9th).

In 2008, Appleman appeared on NBC's Poker After Dark show in the episode "Mayfair Club." The other players were the former owner of the club, Mike Shictman, and professional poker players Howard Lederer, Dan Harrington, Steve Zolotow, and Jay Heimowitz who won the tournament and the $120,000 cash prize. Appleman finished the tournament in third place.

As of 2011, his total live tournament winnings exceed $1,787,000.[2] His 40 cashes at the WSOP account for $1,156,292 of those winnings.[2][3]
