Matt Savage revitalises LA Poker Classic

Matt Savage revitalises LA Poker Classic

Wednesday, 27 January 2010

Live poker tournaments in America have been suffering a slump in numbers recently but primo tournament director Matt Savage has come up with an innovative new format that, coupled with a million dollar guarantee, saw a $300 tournament reach a first place prize of $363,936.

A massive field of 3,971 players helped but the real gem was Savage’s idea of having busted players re-register up to midway through Day 2, shattering the $1,000,000 guarantee and creating an overall prize pool of $1,750,000.

The winner of the spectacular success was California resident Darrell Cain, who is now over $360k richer thanks to Matt Savage and a whole heap of help from Lady Luck.

The LA Poker Classic main event is in March with a $15,000 WPT tournament. We’ll bring you all the news from that tournament as it happens, of course.
