RGPS Tunica Horseshoe Main Event Players: Matthew Kassela

Matthew Kassela

Matt Kassela is in the field today. He's the Vice President of Sales at a marketing company.

He's married and he and his wife, Kimberly, have two kids.

Kassela's name might sound familiar because he is the son of 2010 World Series of Poker Player of the Year and three-time WSOP bracelet winner Frank Kassela.

Matt says he learned to play cards from his dad when he was about ten years old. He has $48,837 in career tournament winnings, most of which comes from two cashes in the WSOP main event. He just finished 744th for $20,200 this year and last year marked the first year that Frank and three of his children played the WSOP main event together.
