Professional relationship bluffer Matt Baier has always seen himself as an aspiring professional poker player (aka pokah playah), and it looks as though he may be putting Amber Portwood’s money where his mouth is by competing in The World Series of Poker!
Matt and Amber apparently parted ways for reals after their stint in the Marriage Boot Camp Reality Stars: Family Edition house, with Matt getting the early boot late last week. After that, his whereabouts were unknown, until he resurfaced today on social media to post this photo:
Matt captioned the picture with “Stairway to Heaven ♠️♦️♥️♣️ #wsop #lasvegas #poker” and Instagram geotagged the photo as being posted in Las Vegas.
I checked the website for The World Series of Poker, and sure enough, it is getting into full swing right now. There are numerous events happening daily, with the No Limit Texas Hold ‘Em Main Event kicking off on Saturday. As fans of poker know, the event has a $10,000 buy-in. Last year’s winner took home just over $8 million.
On last week’s episode it was revealed on the “Teen Mom OG Check In With Dr. Drew” that Matt had taken $120,000 from his and Amber’s account. He admitted that he took $30,000 to gamble with in Las Vegas, which he says was “his” because he got paid $27,000 for his appearance on Teen Mom OG. As far as the other $90,000, Matt was his usual shifty self as he managed to slickly dodge the question again and again.
We don’t have any confirmation that Matt is playing in any of The World Series Of Poker events, but I would be willing to bet a lot of Amber’s money that he is! And I give it about a 65% chance that he will be playing in the Main Event. That’s all speculation at this point, but stay tuned!
UPDATE – A day later Matt tweeted “Good morning #LasVegas” but it indicated he was in Brooklyn. It seems like we are once again like the mothers of his children were for so long in that we have no idea where he is! Here’s his tweet:
