Matt Salsberg

If you search for Matt Salsberg on, you'll see that he has executive producer and writing credits for [i]HBO's Weeds[/b], and producer credits for Entourage. He's also quite a strong poker player - he has over $400,000 in career live tournament earnings, including a 70th-place finish in the 2011 WSOP Main Event.
This is Salsberg's second career six-figure score, and no matter where he finishes, this will be his largest career cash. The Hollywood producer has been among the chip leaders since the start of the tournament, and is looking to go wire-to-wire at the final table.
