Mike Matusow Wins WSOP Bracelet Number 4

Mike Matusow Wins WSOP Bracelet Number 4Mike Matusow has picked-up a fourth career WSOP bracelet in Las Vegas, after taking down the $5,000 Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo (Event #13) in the early hours of Saturday morning, for $266,503. The 45 year-old has had his fair share of troubles in the past, and has been known to ruin days of solid play with his trademark “Mike Matusow Meltdown.” This time around, however, Matusow had a “feeling” the tournament had his name on it and managed to keep his emotions in check long enough to stay the course.
Commenting later on his remarkable victory, the Las Vegas resident explained: “I go through a lot of ups and downs, medicine wise. When my head is level, and my focus is right, I play at the level I’m supposed to play at.”
Mike Matusow cashed in at his first live tournament in 1996, with his first bracelet coming at the 1999 WSOP $3,500 NL event for $265,475. Three years later at the 2002 WSOP, Matusow subsequently won the $5,000 Omaha Hi-Low Split 8 or Better for $148,520, before following up with a win at the 2008 WSOP $5,000 No Limit 2–7 Draw w/Rebuys event for $537,862. Now with his latest victory at the $5,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low event, Matusow has taken his WSOP winnings to $3,539,254, and his overall career earnings to an impressive $8,937,932.
On his way to collecting his 4th bracelet, Matusow had to first overcome a tough field packed with pros. Amongst those cashing in a the event was Eugene Katchalov in 22nd ($9,583), Joe Tehan in 17th ($9,583), Brian Hastings in 16th ($11,528), and Eli Elezra in 15th ($11,528).
At the final table, Mike Matusow would then proceed to outlast players such as Vladimir Shchmelev, Gavin Smith, David Baker, Mike Leah, and finally UK pro Matthew Ashton heads-up, in order to secure his famous victory.
The final table payouts were as follows:
1 Mike Matusow – $266,503
2 Matthew Ashton – $164,700
3 Mike Leah – $108,412
