888poker is doing some good things across the board. From hosting some of the best online tournaments to signing some big name ambassadors. Most recently, they've announced they will be hosting 11-Day Live Poker Festivals.

This summer, 25-year-old Matthias Habernig, played one of the most memorable events of his life. The young pro from Austria navigated a field of 6,737 players to finish 64 in the WSP Main Event for a $96,787 payday. I have been following his career since he was 19 playing the LAPT, and it was my pleasure to write this piece on his for CardsChat -> https://www.cardschat.com/news/matthias-habernig-deep-run-wsop-main-event-cardschat-interview-28721
