Was It Really That Long Ago?

Published on Jun 13th, 2007

This week's Podcast features an interview with former #1 ranked online tournament player Chris "brsavage" Savage.

Once upon a time, PocketFives.com was an upstart company with the aim of promoting online poker, and the players who formed a part of the industry. When the PocketFives.com Online Tournament Player Rankings were released in early 2005, the #1 player was none other than "brsavage". Chris' dominance in large buy-in freezeout and satellite tournaments is well-known here in the community, as PocketFivers from around that world have stood on the virtual rail over 2 1/2 years to cheer on Mr. Savage. With several Seats into major live tournaments, final tables in just about every $100+ daily tournament on the net, and a 3rd Place finish in the PokerStars Sunday Million, it's no wonder why so many up and coming tournament specialists watch his instructional videos on www.pokerxfactor.com.

But Chris' contributions to the PocketFives.com community have gone well beyond top-notch tournament play. "Brsavage" is a frequent poster on the site and has at times gone out of his way to lend a helping hand to members who have poker related questions. The game has evolved enormously in the 29 months since Chris signed up for a P5's account, and there is an ever-growing debate on how the younger multi-tablers (some who play in over 20 MTT's per day) stack up against the "old guard" tournament players who had a large amount of success when player fields were much smaller.

Chris will talk about the evolution of online tournament play in his interview this week, as well as his feelings on some of the younger players who have dominated the rankings. Listeners who wish to submit questions for future Podcast guests can do so by emailing podcast@pocketfives.com.
