#221 Justin Hammer: Growing the Game & Making Guarantees

Full Episode Description
Today’s guest on CPG was a 2022 finalist for the GPI tournament director of the year, is the tournament supervisor for the MGM Grand, and is touted by CPG favorite & one day poker hall of famer Matt Savage as one of the very best in the world at his craft… Justin Hammer.I had an amazing time speaking with Justin & learning about everything that goes into estimating & hitting tournament guarantees, what the other side of an overlay feels like when guarantees are missed, and how it feels running tournaments in Texas where, as we all know, everything is bigger.Before you dive in and learn more about Justin, there are some technical difficulties in today’s episode so please bear with us and, if you just can’t take it, tag Matt Savage on Twitter and send him your complaints. I’m sure it’s somehow his fault.Now, without any further ado, I bring to you one of the very best & brightest tournament directors in the whole world… the one & only Justin Hammer.
