Episode 82

Today my guest on the podcast coming back for a very special Round 2 is my favorite tournament director of all-time Matt Savage.

If you’ve forgotten, Matt’s the executive tour director of the WPT and has seen just about all there is to see at live poker tournaments.

While recorded only a few weeks ago this conversation took place before the passing of longtime voice of the WPT and great personal friend of Matt’s, Mike Sexton. Expect to hear some tales of being on the road with Mike Sexton as well as how the Mike Sexton Champions Cup came to be.

You’ll also want to be prepared for us to close on a somber note with Matt sharing stories about Ethan May, a WPT tournament director who tragically passed away at the way-too-young age of 30.

In this Round 2 conversation with Matt, you’ll also learn:

  • How somehow despite there not being any live poker to go around Matt has less free time than ever.
  • What’s going on with those WPT final tables that have just been sitting around in purgatory since the beginning of the year.
  • Matt’s thoughts on the rise of online MTT’s

So without any further ado, I bring to you the GOAT tournament direct and poker hall-of-famer in my heart Matt Savage.
