Matt Glantz is a professional poker player who hails from Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania. Over the course of his career, Glantz has amassed over $4.8 million in live tournament winnings.
Glantz has tournament cashes dating all of the way back to 1999, but his largest score came in 2009 when he won the EPT London High Roller event and pocketed $862,837 in tournament winnings. More recently, Glantz took fourth in the inaugural World Poker Tour Alpha 8 Florida tournament where he cashed for $243,180. Despite not owning a World Series of Poker bracelet, Glantz has found much success at the WSOP over the years, scoring a total of six scores that are over six-figures.
A first or second place today would net Glantz his largest lifetime single tournament score. He enters the table in fifth chip position, but will have some work to do early against the larger stacks at the table.
