The Bernard Lee Poker Show (4/7/20): Matt Savage

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.

Lessons from the WPT: How to Treat Poker Players Like Champions

You don’t have to have won a WPT title to have an incredible time and be treated like a rock star at a World Poker Tour Event. The WPT excels at treating ALL of their players like champions.

That’s not just a line someone force-fed me; that’s how I genuinely feel after having had a front-row seat to the WPT Season XVI Tournament of Champions festivities over the past week. From the parties, to the swag bags, and much more, if you want a truly VIP poker experience, sign yourself up for a WPT event!
