Twitter is where it’s at if you’re looking to be a part of the poker community on social media. That said, finding sources of positivity within the community can sometimes be a challenge.
We’ve put together our list of the top 21 accounts you need to follow for positivity in poker. Let us know who else ought to have made the list.
In this episode of The Bernard Lee Poker Show, Bernard interviews WPT Executive Tour Director Matt Savage, who ran three consecutive WPT Main Events during the early part of 2020. The final Main Event was 2020 Shooting Star Bay 101, which ended in an ICM chop due to COVID-19.
Matt describes not only the details of the Bay 101 Main Event, but the weeks leading up to it. Matt also discussed the beginning of his career up to winning the GPI Global Award for year’s Best Tournament Director.
Bernard speaks with professional poker player Maria Ho about the 2nd Annual Global Poker Awards ceremony, which she hosted along with Drea Renee in the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas.
While it’s of course a player’s responsibility to pay attention at the table, having to put up with a dealer who isn’t up to par can become pretty insufferable, especially if they keep on making mistakes that affect the outcome of the game.
In this month’s Ask the Poker Experts column, we polled four poker legends – Jan Fisher, Maria Ho, Matt Savage, and Mike Sexton – to see how they would deal with such a situation. It’s a tough question, but also not an uncommon situation that poker players have to deal with. Let’s see how our experts would respond.
Attending the 2018 Women in Poker Hall of Fame ceremony was an honor and a privilege. Beyond the event’s beauty and pageantry, however, was an underlying message that the poker industry needs to take to heart.
It’s time for us all to stop lamenting that there aren’t more women in our game, and to step up and start doing something practical about it. Let’s start putting the time, effort, and resources into making “wishful thinking” a reality to create a second, sustained poker boom.
Beyond the players, there’s a whole industry side to poker as well. Inside Poker, originally produced by Poker Central in 2016 and now available on PokerGO, is hosted by Matt Savage and Sarah Herring.
The pair interview not only players, but also a number of industry stalwarts over 10 great 20-minute episodes that showcase the inner workings and behind-the-scenes goings on in poker that fans don’t usually get exposed to.
