The folks over at Wicked Chops Poker were lucky enough to get an interview with the outgoing Jeffrey Pollack, now former WSOP Commissioner on Friday. All three parts of the interview are now online, as the interview was held in the Pavillion Ballroom, home of PokerPalooza! earlier this year and what is likely to be part of the larger footprint of the 2010 WSOP:

    In this part 1 interview, Pollack mentions the Harvard Business School Advanced Management Program that he went to last fall and Harrahs paid for. To go, you have to be a senior executive, apply, and be nominated by your employer.

    From the website:
    AMP is designed for an elite group of senior executives who are proven business leaders. Successful applicants will hold leadership positions one or two levels from the CEO, and will be identified by their sponsors as a key part of the company’s SUCCESSION PLAN.

    He was gone from work for 8 weeks (no working allowed) and the cost of the program was $60,000. Harrahs made a significant investment (tuition and wages) in him to participate in this program.

    Interesting point, regarding Harvard’s AMP. Not sure what it means, but still, it obviously means something.

    Hey KevMath … “exclusive”? exclusive video maybe, but I think Pokerati had the first interview with him about the topic up.

    Point noted, as it is an exclusive video.

    BTW, I dig the 60 Minutes format, and especially like Part 2 where he talks about Pokerati (about 7 minutes in).
