Mike Matusow advances to the Super 16 in the Poker Superstars Invitational

After the first two round Mike Matusow had zero points and was in danger of not advancing to the Super 16. Earlier this week however, in the final televised match he was able to place second and cap off a stunning run. After his tough start he was able to string together a win and two second place finishes to come into the final match holding his destiny in his hands.

The Mouth needed a third place finish or better to advance and wound up heads up against Jeff Shulman who already had his spot locked up. After a good battle and some great laydowns Mike got all of his chips in holding pocket 8's vs. Shulmans pocket 10's. Mike seemed shocked to see a pair over a pair in heads up competition making the comment "Pair over pair heads up? You gotta be kidding me!"

It was all in fun though as his 8's didn't improve and Jeff took the win and 10K. Mike was complimentary and cool during his exit interview with Mary Strong. He took time to thank everyone and give Jeff props for his good play throughout the event.

Again, in my opinion this is another example of Mike being focused, calm, cool, and collected this year. He's primed for big wins this year and I've got a feeling by the time the WSOP is over, you will be seeing his face on TV final tables many times this year.
