Recording engineer, Steve Albini, was responsible for the making of Nirvana's 'In Utero' album.  This weekend he won his second World Series of Poker bracelet.


Albini overcame a field of 773 to win the Event #32: $1,500 H.O.R.S.E For $196,089.

Poker is a side gig for Albini, who is currently owner and principal engineer of Electrical Audio, a recording studio complex in Chicago.  In addition to Nirvana, he's worked along side other greats in the music industry including Jimmy Page and Robert Plant.

"Everything in my life comes in pieces, in parts. Poker is one part of my life," he said after his win.

"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."

Saturday also kicks off the uber popular Millionaire Maker event at this year's WSOP.
