Matt Cooper is stretching his lead at a pretty rowdy table up front in the Event Center. He acquired a good portion of his 190,000 chips in a hand holding top pair and all-in against a player with a straight-flush, straight, and flush draws.
He managed to dodge all his opponents outs to take the pot.
Most of Matt’s tournament earnings came in one lump sum. This past summer, he made it to the semi-finals of the WSOP $10,000 No Limit Heads-Up Championship, earning $111,525. He lost his semi-final round to well-known pro Paul Volpe. (Paul finished second, losing in the final round to Keith Lehr.)
When another player at the table compared his appearance to “Mr. Clean”, he said, “but I have hair!”
