In a field packed with famous players, sometimes less famous faces get lost in the crowd. One player, though, who definitely should not be overlooked is Matt Matros.
Matros has won World Series bracelets in each of the past three years, and is currently looking to tie the record of four consecutive years with a WSOP win, currently held by both the legendary Doyle Brunson and Bill Boyd. Even if he is unable to win a fourth piece of WSOP hardware this year, Matros is already in an exclusive club, as only ten players have won WSOP events three years in a row.
This event is an excellent opportunity for Matros to tie Brunson and Boyd’s record. Though he doesn’t consider himself a limit hold’em specialist, there is no denying he’s had immense success in the game. His first bracelet came in a limit hold’em event, and he currently sits eighth on the all-time list for WSOP limit hold’em earnings ($ 574,758).
PokerNews will keep you apprised of Matros’ progress as he vies for his fourth bracelet against this top-notch field.
