Fischman grew up in South Jersey and moved to Las Vegas at the age of 12. He was introduced to poker by a schoolfriend and went on to become a poker dealer at the Sahara and the Mirage. At the 2004 World Series of Poker (WSOP) he became the youngest person ever to win two WSOP bracelets, winning one bracelet in a no limit Texas hold'em and a second in a H.O.R.S.E. tournament.
In 2003, Fischman became a member of the poker-playing group "The Crew," which also included Dutch Boyd, Bobby Boyd, David Smyth, Joe Bartholdi Jr, Tony Lazar and Brett Jungblut (Jungblut and Bartholdi have both since left the group).
In 2008, Fischman made the final table in the main event at the World Series of Poker Europe, finishing in 6th place.
Fischman has competed in and served as a guest commentator for the Ultimate Poker Challenge. As "emptyseat88", he plays on numerous online poker cardrooms. He has cashed a record 13 times at the World Championship of Online Poker.
