Level 7 (Blinds 250/500/50)
The list of players to throw their names in the hat to commentate the first ever live streamed Borgata (non-WPT) event was long and full of notables. When the dust cleared though, their would be five players chosen to be the voice of the players during the two final tables to be streamed: Ebony Kenney, Scott Baumstein, Jamie Kerstetter, Michael Gagliano, and Matt Salsberg. The latter is one of the more entertaining personalities in the poker world, an accomplished tournament player as well as an accomplished producer/writer.
Salsberg has over $1,800,000 in career tournament earnings, with his breakout score coming in 2012 when he won the WPT Rende-Vous A Paris for over $478,000. He has also produced and writer for two of the more popular television shows in recent years (Entourage and Weeds). Salsberg is another player coming off a solid WSOP summer, cashing in four events and final tabling Event #29 ($2,500 No Limit Hold’em), finishing in third place for over $207,000. Matt returned from break with a salad for nourishment and a stack above 35,000.
