Matt Salsberg, accomplished TV writer and current WPT Player Of The Year makes his return to the show to chat about his year playing full-time on the circuit and how he works writing new scripts into his busy poker schedule. He reveals info on his latest TV pilot sold to the FOX network and whether his Hollywood friends hit him up for poker tips. In forum static the guys chat about the NJ Gaming Divison of Gaming Enforcements decision to pause the licensing process for PokerStars, and whether Tom ‘Durrrr’ Dwan’s sponsorship with Full Tilt Poker not being renewed marks his decline as a poker superstar. EPT Prague Festival is covered including discussion of the emergence of Ole Schemion as the biggest rising young star in the game. Finally the boys have some kind words for Allen ‘Chainsaw’ Kessler as they examine the successful year of a true live grinder.
