Poker After Dark “Mission Impossible” week as Mike Matusow tries to break 0-8 losing streak on PAD

Mike Matusow will try to break his losing streak on Poker After Dark this week as new episodes start airing tonight in “Mission Impossible” week.

The “Mission Impossible” is to poke fun at the fact that Mike Matusow has appeared 8 times on Poker After Dark and hasn’t won yet.

Clonie Gowen (2-4 on PAD), Gavin Smith (1-1 on PAD), Phil Hellmuth (3-7 on PAD), Phil Laak (1-3 on PAD) and David Williams (1-1 on PAD) will try to make it “Mission Impossible” once again for Mike “The Mouth” Matusow and prevent him from getting his first Poker After Dark win.

Epsiodes appear weekdays Monday thru Friday late night (early morning) 2:05 AM on NBC with a directors cut appearing late Saturday (early Sunday).

On the Poker After Dark site it states:

Your mission Mr. Matusow, if you choose to accept it, is to beat five Poker After Dark champions – a title that has eluded you in eight previous attempts. You will face Phil Hellmuth, a player with an encyclopedic knowledge of Hold ‘em. His expertise is especially evident when players send him to the rail he tells them how bad they played against him. Phil Laak is the complete opposite. He tells players how bad he is even when he’s raking in their chips. Clonie Gowen is as beautiful as she is deadly. She’s won two PAD titles in four appearances. And don’t let the fact that David Williams developed his poker skills by playing “Magic: The Gathering” fool you. This guy’s no nerd. He has a WSOP bracelet and has won over $6 million. Gavin Smith might have a reputation as a party animal, but he’s definitely more ferocious when he’s on the felt. Finally, there’s you, Mr. Matusow. More times than not, you are your own worst enemy. When it comes to this tournament, make sure you don’t self-destruct.

    Wow, I made the cut. Thanks!Actually, I attempted to throw in a small pic of a PBR can, but cluodn’t figure out how to do it right. I think it’s safe to say I’m better at poker than at html.As soon as I figure out the whole adding-a-pic thing, I’ll see if I can’t fabricate a reason to show Mr Gordon.
