After what felt like 15 minutes of being fully immersed in Matt’s poker journey, I looked down at the clock and 1.5 had zoomed by like magic.The bad news I did that thing again where I only asked my guests two of my prepared questions. The good news is Matt’s going to come back on in the very near future and mesmerize me once again.When our Round 2 goes down I fully expect to share with you some behind-the-scenes stories featuring the late, great Gavin Smith.In today’s conversation with Matt, you’re going to hear stories about:His first ever live poker experience which involves him leaving his High School to head to the smoky casino and his friend hitting the Royal Flush jackpot.The time he sat down at $20/$40 NL in Commerce with his entire bankroll in action so that he could win enough money to buy in directly to the LAPC Main Event the following day.The story of how his bankroll exploded with a 6-figure day where he took down an FTOPs event he didn’t even wanna play.And much, MUCH more!And before you dive into today’s episode, if you’d like to support CPG while also taking the necessary first step towards playing winning cash game poker, Preflop Bootcamp fires up on the last Saturday of every month.The place to check it out is without any further ado, I bring to you WSOP & WPT Champ, the founder of, and the briefly ranked #1 poker player in the entire multiverse Matt Waxman.
