Have you managed to catch some of the Real Talk episodes that have been released on PokerGO? If not, let me get you up to speed! Real Talk is the latest PokerGO Original series, hosted by yours truly, in which we dive deep into the hottest topics of the game of poker. It’s been an honor hosting this show, and I think that as a true poker fan you will get a kick out of hearing the stories and learning from the knowledge that the guests have to share.

On this episode of Real Talk, I’m joined by one of the most renowned tournament directors in the game, Matt Savage, and long-time poker professional and former winner of the PCA, Christian Harder. I couldn’t ask for a better combination of minds to discuss the intricacies of live tournaments, the speed of the game, the cost involved in being a professional, whether or not re-entries should be limited or expanded, and what the future of the game could look like.

In poker, we tend to go with the flow of whatever the loudest voices are saying, but as players and fans, we have the ability to speak our mind about the ever-evolving changes our beautiful game is going through. You prefer the big blind ante? You like an old-fashioned rebuy tournament? Make your voice heard, hit up Matt Savage, Christian Harder, or myself up on Twitter because we’re curious what you have to say about what poker needs.

But first, give Real Talk a look and see on which side of the fence you sit with some of the changes that live tournament world has gone through.
