If you’ve ever played in a Matt Savage run tournament then you know why he made our list. He’s a “pros pro” who handles his business in a straightforward manner but gives it that personal touch. He’s the poker communities virtual floorman, answering poker rules questions via his popular Twitter account and keeps it real on the regular, even when that means destroying the reputation of something he helped create. Not everyone agrees with everything he promotes (first card off the deck, anyone?) but he’s accessible and treats all players with respect and for that, we’re thankful.
