DAPPEN TAKING ON MATUSOW

An amateur Mike Dappen will be taking on Mike Matusow in the “Big Heat.” The other two sit and gos will feature the traditional $20,000 buy-in and a richer $50,000 buy-in. The $20,000 version will be called “Wish List,” with amateur Mike Dappen taking on Mike Matusow, Phil Hellmuth, Jennifer Harman, Erica Schoenberg, and Chris Ferguson. Dappen won the opportunity to play for the $300,000 first prize by winning the Howard and Suzie Lederer Charity Poker Tournament, which raised money for the Boys and Girls Clubs.

MATUSOW MAKES THE US TEAM

Mike Matusow has made it into the U.S team along with many other stars. Latest news is that there are some new countries added to the mix to the event, which is being held next month, but doesn’t have a time or a place set, other than Vegas, sometime. The U.S. team consists of Doyle Brunson, Phil Hellmuth, Mike Matusow, Allen Cunningham, Annie Duke, Jennifer Harman, Chris Ferguson, Howard Lederer and Erik Seidel.

MATUSOW LEADS ON DAY 2

Mike Matusow survived stiff competition on Day 2 to finish at the top of the leaderboard. At the end of Day 2, Mike Matusow leads the field on 85,500; ahead of second-place Huck Seed who could only muster up 73,000 to push ahead of third place Johnny Chan.

The few unfortunate players to bust were current champion Joe Cada; poker legend Doyle Brunson; online qualifier Andrew Barton and recent Hall of Fame addition Mike Sexton.

MIKE MATUSOW IN DIET BET?

Phil Hellmuth tweeted about the Matusow v. Forrest bet, claiming that Forrest has to weigh 139lbs by July 15 in order to win two million dollars from Mike “The Mouth” Matusow. Frankly, we’re surprised that Matusow has two million to lose.

If he doesn’t make the weight by then, he has until September 15 in which case he will win $1m. If he doesn’t succeed, Matusow gets $150,000. Apparently Justin Smith also has a large chunk of the action.
