World Series Bracelet Winner Matt Matros Explains It All

Yale math major tells you how to best "do" the WSOP.

Matt Matros is no dummy so when he gives advice on how to best go about playing in the World Series of Poker you’d best listen up. The Washington Post reached out Matros to the 3-time WSOP bracelet winner at the start of the series to get the lowdown on how one can best experience the spectacle of the summer.

Get Backed

The best way not to lose your own money gambling is to play with someone else’s.

Play A Wide Variety of Events

Since it’s unlikely one player, no matter how good, will win every huge event he or she enters, smart poker players who want to maximize EV mix it up.

Take Care of Yourself

Try to eat healthy at least occasionally. Try not to party too hard.

Go Heads Up!

The small field gives the competent heads-up player (and I consider myself competent) a realistic chance at a bracelet, and the high buy-in offers pretty good value.

Finally, play the Main.

Going to the WSOP and not sitting down at the main event — a $10,000 buy-in no-limit Texas Hold ‘Em tournament — is like going to Churchill Downs on Kentucky Derby day and not wagering on the big race.

There other great advice embedded in his advice so before you make sure you check out The Washington’s Post article: The World Series of Poker (WSOP) begins today. Here’s how you should play it.
