Mission Impossible: Mike Matusow’s Boldness

The mouth goes for first win in ninth appearance


The “Mission Impossible” table of Season 4 of Poker After Dark raised the stakes in table talk and tension when the 0-8 Mike Matusow was tasked to defeat five previous PAD champs. David Williams, Gavin Smith, Clonie Gowen, Phil Laak and Phil Hellmuth each took turns needling Matusow in their own way -but ultimately Gowen won.

Hellmuth put Matusow in a negative space at the start, where Matusow mucked ace-king preflop.
