Throwback Thursday: Mike Matusow Wins NBC Heads-Up Poker Championship

  • Throwback: Mike Matusow knew he would win the 2013 NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship.

Not matter where you stand on the political spectrum, most poker players and fans will agree that Mike Matusow is one of the pioneers of the game of poker. On this week's PokerNews Podcast Episode #414, we were delighted to welcome Mike "The Mouth" Matusow. Be sure to check that out here.

During the Podcast interview, Matusow shared that winning the NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship was one of his proudest moments. With five WSOP bracelets and a litany of poker accomplishments, this win had particular significance to "The Mouth."

So, for this week's ThrowBack Thursday, we dug up the winner interview from that event with former PokerNews' hostess Kristy Arnett. Matusow shares how he knew he would win, even if it might sound crazy and why he was particularly happy to end up playing against Phil Hellmuth.
