Mike Matusow collects second $1 million payday of 2005.

Poker veteran Mike “The Mouth” Matusow turned in a gutsy and often-times brilliant performance before finishing first at the World Series of Poker Tournament of Champions at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. Matusow’s victory comes less than four months after he finished ninth at the WSOP Main Event, and marks his second $1 Million payday of the year.

Matusow, long known as one of the game’s most outspoken and aggressive players, went into the TOC claiming to be playing “the best poker of my career,” and his first-place finish shows that he does indeed have the game to back up his talk. When the tournament reached the final three players, Matusow trailed both Phil Hellmuth, who finished third, and Hoyt Corkins who took second. In total, Matusow outlasted 113 other players in the invitation-only tournament, and called the victory “the greatest win of my life.”

“Mike Matusow has once again proven that he’s more than just “The Mouth,” said Team Full Tilt member Howard Lederer. “His play over the past year clearly shows that his game is as good as anyone’s and that he’s a threat in any tournament he enters.”

Matusow represents one of the fastest growing online poker sites, http://www.fulltiltpoker.com, and spends several hours a week online helping amateur players learn the game by sharing his poker knowledge through real-time chats at the virtual tables.
