Nic Szeremeta (born June 1943) is a poker player of mixed English/Polish descent, noted as a former editor of Poker Monthly magazine, and creator of the popular Late Night Poker television series (and commentator with Jesse May during its first three series.)
Nic's father, who used to play draw poker himself, was a rear gunner who went missing during World War II.
At the age of 47, he found it difficult to get work, so bought a betting office. It lost money despite a reasonable turnover, yet was sold at a profit.
In 1995, he was made secretary of the European Poker Players' Association. He was permanently on the poker circuit until 1998 when he began editing Poker Europa magazine. Around the same time he created Late Night Poker, although he eventually left the show due to a money dispute and disagreement about the show's direction.
He also helped create the World Heads-Up Poker Championship. Nic has played poker in over 10 countries to date.
His daughter Kate, a former piano teacher, also plays poker. He currently resides in the town of Torquay in the south west of England.
As of 2010, his total live tournament winnings exceed $190,000
