Mathew Frankland's Biography
Mathew Frankland was first introduced to poker by some friends when he was 16. He fell in love with the game immediately and began to play online and develop his game. By the time he started attending the University of Leeds, he had aspirations of turning pro. By the end of his first year, he was making enough to justify the move and soon began his pro career.
Mathew first started as a cash game player and eventually transitioned to tournaments. The move proved profitable as he has won over $2.1 million in online tournaments. His largest score to date came earlier this year when he finished 2nd in an FTOPS Event and took down $116,805 in prize money. In addition, he has numerous five-figure scores including a pair of deep SCOOP event runs last year that netted him $66,130 and $62,040 respectively.
Mathew’s online experience has translated into live tournament success. In 2010, he recorded his first six-figure score at English Poker Open in London after finishing 3rd and earning $119,409. In 2011, he made a deep run at the 2011 World Series of Poker Main Event and finished in 121st.
In 2012, Mathew finished 7th at the Premier League Poker V event in Vienna, adding another $65,000 to his live earnings. Earlier this year, he finished in the money in a pair of EPT event, including a 30th place finish in the EPT Deauville main event. At present, Mathew has $431,218 in live tournament earnings.
Mathew recently revealed that he has begun to focus more on online cash games as he believe there is a larger edge there for good players. He now brings his years of experience in both cash games and tournaments to the Ivey Poker app where he can regularly be spotted at the tables.
