"The Mouth" says what we're all thinking

Mike Matusow

For those of you who haven't heard yet, some of the World Series of Poker final tables will be taking place in a super-secret curtained-off area where nobody will be able to observe. One such table was Monday's $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em, won by Phil Hellmuth.

It was a history-making event as Hellmuth outlasted and outplayed a field of 2,628 players to win a record-making 11th bracelet. And nobody but a select, secret few got to see it live.

The event was earmarked for the special one-hour delayed, online pay-per-view broadcast, so it was sequestered behind black curtains.

There were more than a few upset fans at the Rio yesterday who wanted to watch the champ make history. There was lots of grumbling and questioning of the decision but it was Greg Mueller and Chad Brown.

Also still hanging in with the cash nearing for the top 99 players are Shawn Buchanon, Billy Baxter and more.

Tune in to the Live Tournaments Section to see how the pros fare today and more than likely hear about another Matusow outburt.
