Matros Hopes to Win Fourth WSOP Bracelet
Matt Matros, three-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner is preparing for yet another victory this summer. If he pulls it off, he will be counted among poker superstars such Bill Boyd and Doyle Brunson.
Matros’ winnings are no less staggering than the sheer skill of his game: last year he won $454,835 with $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em Six Handed, in 2011 he walked away with $303,501 while in 2010 Matros earned a handsome $ 189,870 at the 1,500 Limit Hold’em event.
Matros said “My dream was to always win a bracelet, and when I won the first one I felt like I had made so many deep runs, so many cashes, and a few final tables that I was maybe owed a win after years and years of playing in the series. Then the next two were just complete icing on the cake.”
To win the coveted fourth bracelet, Matros believes he will have to rely on his skill and luck: “I am a good player but there are a lot of good players here who are as good as I am or better and have yet to win a bracelet. So then some of that is luck.”
