Getting to know Matt Berkey Poker Player/Coach

October 17 LuckyLady

“Matt Berkey is a bit of an unknown when it comes to tournaments because he has spent so much of his career grinding it out in cash games. However, he has had a couple of close calls, cashing for more than $550,000 online and finishing 43rd in the 2010 WSOP main event for $206,395.” — Card Player

This month’s blog we have a special appearance by my poker coach and Poker Pro 
from Las Vegas Matt Berkey. I can’t say how much Matt has improved my game within this past year. Coaching makes all the difference in the world.  I am grateful to have Matt in my corner. Stay tuned for our post on ‘Why everyone should get poker coaching’.

Shout out to my boy Ross Henry who is a student at B.C.I.T studying radio broadcasting. He conducted this interview and he did a fine job.


May you all run good and never be drawing dead!
