Matt Savage admits re-entry popularization to be a mistake

Matt Savage

The Executive Director of WPT, Matt Savage, stated that his obsession with re-entries in tournaments was a mistake, but he also made some arguments, defending this game format. The guy shared this information by making the following post on his Facebook page:

The "battle" among the poker community began on Twitter right after Foxen won the $10 400 WPT Five Diamond. For finishing first, the player received $1 694 000 in prize money.

In that tournament, Foxen made 5 entries. It is also worth noting Daniel Negreanu, who has recently spoken out against rebuys and re-entris, but who made 2 entries in the same WPT Five Diamond.

Such actions of famous poker players raise even more discussions, pertaining to the tournament re-entries, in the poker community, since the possibility of unlimited re-entries can significantly increase the prize pool.

Nevertheless, "poor" poker players have less chances of winning an event than high rollers, who can afford to enter a tournament multiple times.
