All In Poker Profiles Mike The Mouth
A really excellent write up on Mike Matusow. Here's one of the juicier bits:
Matusow managed to lose $250,000 in prison, more or less his entire bankroll, betting sports. But the more devastating loss, which didn’t become apparent until later, was a mix-up in his medication: Somehow he’d stopped taking Depakote, a mood stabilizer designed to combat his manic depression. There was enough residue in his system for Matusow, upon his release, to make a miraculous run online, transforming a $5,000 stake from Phil Hellmuth into $750,000. But as the remaining Depakote drained from his system, so drained Matusow’s ability to control his emotions. Over a three-week period, coinciding with the 2005 WSOP, Matusow managed to demolish his new bankroll.
