Level 7: 250-500, 75 ante
It's time to open up the WPT History Books again and this time we will look at the short but prolific WPT career of Season XI Player of the Year Matt Salsberg. He is orginally from Montreal although it is well known that he resides in Hollywood these days as a television producer and writer. Lately though, Salsberg has turned his attention to poker and he is just as successful on the felt as he is on the big screen and small screen.
His first cash at a WPT event did not come until the Legends of Poker in his new home of Los Angeles during Season X. He has been on a hot streak since that time, playing in a total of 26 WPT events and cashing in nine of them (a cash-rate of 34.6 percent).
He really dominated during Season XI, when he cashed six times and made three final tables. Salsberg also won his first WPT title at the Grand Prix de Paris, good for $515,720. Salsberg now has $830,647 in career WPT earnings. Here is a full list of his WPT results.
