Mike Matusow wins "The Most Entertaining Player" award at CardPlayer's Player of the Year awards

I'm finally back from the CardPlayer.com Player of the Year awards and I have to admit, it was a fantastic event. The red carpet was rolled out, the drinks flowed freely, and the atmosphere was electric. Poker royalty from around the world was present for this as Richard Belsky summed it up "It looked a little like a United Nations gathering" referring to the fact that most nationalities sat together.

As I mentioned earlier in my blog, Mike Matusow was up for the "Most Entertaining Player" award along with Phil Hellmuth. Who do you think won it? Of course Mike took down the title! Congrats Mike.

The event was capped off with Men Nguyen taking down the coveted "Player of the Year" title, this being his fourth POY title. You have to respect a man's game when he's won this title FOUR times. Congratulations Men.

Phil Ivey also had a great showing taking down three awards including "Most Feared Player" and "Best No Limt Player". A recap of the awards presented during the evening can be seen below:

Player of the Year – Men Nguyen

Best Cash Game Player - Chip Reese

Poker Ambassador - Mike Sexton
