WSOP Limit Shootout Champion[ return to main articles page ]
Matt Graham signed up for a PocketFives.com account in February 2005; playing recreationally while attending college. Fast forward two and a half years and you have one of the most dramatic transformations ever in online poker. Currently ranked #45 in the world, Matt has had three cashes of over $50,000 since May in major tournaments, including a win in the PokerStars Sunday Second Chance earlier this month. His biggest accomplishment came just a month earlier, when he won the WSOP Limit Hold'em Shootout event for $278,000. Matt talks about his dramatic WSOP comeback in this week's interview, and gives our listeners a viewpoint from a full-time high stakes online tournament professional.
Our second guest is Frank Farenkopf, CEO of the American Gaming Association. Frank will be on to provide our listeners with background info on the AGA, as well as the American Gaming Association's stance on proposed legislation that would affect online poker.
