Matusow vs. Hellmuth, NBC Heads-Up Championship
BY ERIC RASKIN
NBC couldn’t have asked for anything more. On one side of the final table at the first post-Black-Friday edition of the National Heads-Up Poker Championship sat Phil Hellmuth, the number one ratings driver of the TV-poker era. On the other side sat Mike Matusow, Hellmuth’s greatest rival in the polarizing-personality race. These are two undisputed superstars of the game, guys you either love to hate or love to love, both of whom happen to love to talk.
Matusow held nearly a 3-to-1 chip lead when he was dealt 8-4 of diamonds and opened for a min-raise to 32K. Hellmuth called with K-10, then checked in the dark. The flop hit both men with blunt force: JsKd2d. Phil had top pair, Mikey a flush draw. Matusow fired 30K, and Hellmuth called. The turn was the six of spades, changing nothing. Hellmuth checked, and Matusow tried to take it down with a bet of 105K.
The 2014 Aces & Angels “Salute the Troops Wall Street Poker Showdown” was a huge success, and I was honored to MC such a great evening of poker. The event raises money for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, Wall Street Warfighters Foundation, and the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation. Hundreds of Wall Street traders, bankers and analysts gathered in the Prince George Ballroom in NYC’s Financial District to play for a great cause, and the top finisher won a seat at this year’s WSOP!
