Bio of Matt Waxman

Matthew Waxman is a professional poker player who had his first live-event cash in 2008. In the first 3 years, Matt cashed 35 times, made 16 final tables, won 4 events including a WPT Title, cashed at the WSOP 15 times, and earned close to $1.8 million.

Born in 1985 in Princeton, New Jersey, Matt did not start out to become a professional poker player. While living in Parkland, Florida, Matt graduated from Florida Atlantic in 2007 with a degree in Psychology but soon found his skills translated well to the poker table.

Matt’s first live-event cash occurred at Caesars in Las Vegas during the summer of 2008 when he finished 8th in the $300 NLHE at the Mega Stacks Series to earn $3,521. The following year he would begin his run at the big tournaments. During the 2009 WSOP he would cash 4 times, including a 6th place final table finish in the $5,000 NLHE 6-Max event for $138,393, and a cash in the Main Event.

Matt did not slow down in 2010 as he would cash in 11 tournaments, make 4 final tables, and earn a WSOP Circuit event title. In February, he finished 5th place in the $1,065 HORSE at the L.A. Poker Classic, cashed at the NAPT Mohegan Sun, and followed by finishing 6th in the $3,300 NLHE Championship event at the Borgata Spring Open for $61,299. He cashed 4 more times at the 2010 WSOP, and finished 33rd in the WSOP Europe Main Event for £21,106.

At the 2010 World Series of Poker Circuit Main Event in Atlantic City, Matt won his first title when he outlasted 352 players to pick up the WSOP-C Champions ring along with $117,797 at a final table which included Ismael Cabrera, Manny Patel, and Chris \”boNeZee\” Bonita.

In 2011, Matt cashed 14 times and won his first WPT title. In January, he finished 4th for $10,000 in the NAPT PCA Bounty Shootout, then won the $2,200 NLHE at the Isle Classic for $86,078. Next, he had a 3rd place finish in the Main Event at the Wynn Classic for $120,814, and a pair of final table cashes at the WSOP Circuit event New Orleans.

At the 2011 WSOP, Matt cashed 3 times, with his best effort being a 3rd place finish in the $1,500 Omaha-8 to earn $104,770. After cashing at the Deep Stack Extravaganza, he won the WPT Grand Prix de Paris Main Event for €500,000 and his first WPT title, marking the first time in WPT Paris history that an American ever won the title there.

Matt finished his year by cashing 3 more times in Europe. He cashed at the EPT/UK & Ireland Poker Tour London, and cashed 3 times at the WSOP Europe Cannes, where he took 11th for €26,618 in the €10,000 Mixed NLHE, and cashed for €32,000 in the Main Event.
