    Sorry to hear that about him. He has such a cool voice and seemed to be a great ambassador for poker. He's also one of a few random celebs that I've crossed paths with in Vegas, and if you didn't know who he was, you would never know he was famous.

    Chris moneymaker gets way to much credit for the poker boom, it was Mike Sexton, Vince Van Patton and the WPT along with Party Poker.

    Great man, great poker ambassador. I've had the great pleasure to sit at a poker table with him a couple of times and cannot say enough good things about him. Humble, authentic, personable and professional. The type of guy you look forward to seeing show up at your home game. Wow, hope he gets the miracle cure on the river.

    Very, very sad.

    If there was ever to be a one time, this would be it.

    Mike had a long livestream earlier, which is a really powerful watch (make sure you have a handkerchief to hand)

    I was watching Daniel Negreanu's live stream of his WSOP event when Negreanu called into Matusow's tribute. Just hearing his golf story was enough for me.
