Mike Matusow in 2006
He's adjusted well to the publicity, toned down his attitude (but kept just enough to be entertaining on TV), and perhaps the meds are playing a big role as well. Either way, I expect to see Mike come out of the gates running in '06 starting with the first WSOP circuit event in Tunica in January.
I spoke with Mike briefly the other night via chat at an online poker table and he mentioned he would be at Bellagio playing the first of January. I'll be there as well and we agreed to try and catch up if possible. I hope to get an interview for the blog here so stay tuned.
In the meantime, I hope 2005 was a great year for you and 2006 is even better!
