The Mouth dribbles around at $40/$80

Mike Matusow

Who knows what poker icon Mike Matusow is doing at the $40/$80 tables on Full Tilt the morning after busting just shy of the final table at the Wynn Classic?

Fulfilling his monthly quota of hours? Winding down after an all-night session of $1,000-a-point Chinese poker? Trying to roll over his $26k cash from the Wynn against some lesser online players?

Whatever the case, the mighty Mouth stuck around long enough at the low stakes to take the biggest pot online so far today against Taylor Caby, a well known CardRunners instructor and newly minted Full Tilt pro.

The big hand:
