Less of Mike to Like

by , Jun 3, 2008 | 1:17 pm

Mike Matusow is shrinking.

Due to a $100K weight loss bet with Ted Forrest, he has been dieting and losing weight recently. Mike showed up today at the WSOP as a fraction of his former self. He is thinner for sure, but whether he lost the actual 60 pounds required to win the bet is unknown. As of a few days ago, he was a few pounds short. Hope he made it.

One thing he didn’t lose is his voice and his erratic behavior. Weight loss is evidently not a cure for ADD.

    That was the buzz yesterday — people were wondering why he hadn’t shown up yet at the WSOP, and it wasn’t because he was broke, but because he was boot-campin’ it to lose those last few pounds.

    According to his video blog, he’s down to 189 and has 8 pounds to go to win the bet.

    Mike stated on chat at full tilt yesterday that he had made the weight and was going to weigh in at 178, He left the game to do the weigh in.
