Matusow wasted no time jumping into the big leagues as his first cash was a big one at the 1997 WSOP: playing in a $2,000 Limit Omaha Hi/Lo tournament, Mike finished second to Scott Nguyen and won over $81,000 for the finish. The next year, Matusow decided to pay one-third of Scott Nguyen’s $10,000 buy-in to the Main Event. The investment paid off as Nguyen took first place and won $1 million, $333,333 of which went to Matusow for paying a third of the buy-in.
In the 1999 WSOP, Mike won a $3,500 No-Limit Hold’em event which earned him over $265K and his first gold bracelet. Matusow would get another bracelet in the 2002 WSOP for winning a $5,000 Omaha Hi/Lo Split 8 or Better event and his most recent victory came in the 2008 WSOP where he won the $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em 2-7 Draw w/Rebuys tournament.
Mike’s controversial personality has not been without its benefits. Matusow has been on numerous TV shows like High Stakes Poker and Poker After Dark. Perhaps his best known television appearance was on the WPT Bad Boys of Poker II show where he finished second to Tony G. Matusow also wrote an autobiography entitled “Check Raising the Devil” that was released May 12, 2009.
