Mike "The Mouth" Matusow Wins 2010 Florida State Poker Championship

Mike “The Mouth” Matusow has just collected $103,000, after taking down the main event of the Florida State Poker Championship at the Isle Casino & Racing in Pompano Beach.
Matusow was in Florida to promote and run a seminar for poker online training site ‘Deepstack’ and while there decided to take time out to enter the tournament.
During competition he kept in constant contact with fans via his Twitter page and on the final day of play wrote:
“Chip leader 925k 19 left if I play 3 days in a 1k buy in and don’t win I will be in morgue.”
Fortunately for Mike it didn’t come to that and eventually the hugely entertaining poker pro ended up besting  the 400+ field to win the title.
On his way to victory Matusow, as well as using his prolific poker skills, had to also ride his luck a few times, and at one stage had called off almost half his chips with 99 vs KK before hitting a set to boost his stack.
On another occassion, he managed to improve a set to a full house on the river to beat his opponent’s flopped flush, and is also rumoured to have been dealt pocket Q’s four times in a row.
With his latest win, the 42 year-old three time WSOP bracelet winner now boosts his life time tournament wins to around $6.5 million.
Mike Matusow was in Florida running the Deepstack Live seminar and helping poker enthusiasts to make the most of the new relaxed casino laws related to poker.
Previously, Florida players had a buy-in limit set at just $100 for no-limit poker games, and since the change in law many pros have been cashing in on the inexperience of local players at higher, deepstacked levels.
Ahead of the seminars, Matusow stirred up a bit of controvery when he declared; “In Florida, you’re dealing with a lot of raw players, and they’re terrible.”
Although said slightly tongue in cheek and for dramatic effect, winning the 2010 Florida State Poker Championship Main event will surely have gone a long way towards quieting down some of his local critics.
