Mike Matusow Says He Will Fight Day 2 Registration till the Day He Dies

Mike Matusow has tweeted his disgust at the continuing situation of players being able to register into tournaments on Day 2 with more than two thirds of the field already out. He promised to do everything in his power until the day he dies to end this scourge on the game.


Todd Witteles, a guy who usually has his finger on the pulse, agreed, explaining that Day 2 registrations works heavily in the favour of professionals, allowing them to mis a full day’s play and overtake recreational players later in the tournament.

Mike Matusow’s solution is to allow players registering on Day 2 to get a stack of only 10 big blinds. He continued by firing out at the WSOP, asking how many of the 92 bracelet winners in 2023 were won by late registrations.

Many of the tweets fired shots at online poker platforms for being greedy and encouraging late buy-ins only in the pursuit of more rake.

Todd Witteles did his best to explain how registering late in multi-table tournaments has a strategy of its own and allows and advantage to the better-informed players.
