Matt Savage on social media:

Today’s guest is a future poker hall-of-famer (Who sadly missed being inducted last year due to the WSOP shrinking their class by one member) and executive tour director for the World Poker Tour… the one and only Matt Savage.

Matt’s career in the world of poker has now spanned 30 years, which, as someone who feels like a dinosaur because of their 17-year poker career, has to make Matt feel like something that’s even older than a dinosaur.

And I don’t even know what that would be because, well, nobody does.

Suffice to say, though, since Matt’s freshman poker year in 1991 the landscape around the game has changed dramatically and in today’s episode Matt’s going to wax nostalgic how the poker world of yesteryear compares to poker in the year 2021.

In today’s Round 3 episode with Matt Savage, you’re also going to learn:

– Matt’s thoughts on vaccination requirements to play major poker events.

– Our thoughts on how-to make poker more fun.

– How Matt and I feel about the future of online poker and whether or not it’s possible to police the games.

– And much, MUCH more!

Now, without any further ado, I bring to you the man who ran the Moneymaker WSOP Main Event, the founder of the Tournament Directors Association, and executive tour director of the World Poker Tour… good friend of the CPG podcast, the great Matt Savage.
