Poker player died a natural death; not victim of foul play

Poker player died a natural death not victim of foul play

Mathew Huge who was found dead in his Rio hotel during last year’s WSOP died a natural death. As per the coroner, the promising young poker player died from natural causes and was not a victim of foul play, as it was believed initially.

Mathew Hauge, 26-year-old, hailed from Mason City Iowa. According to Clark County coroner, dilated cardiomyopathy is the reason for Hauge’s untimely demise. Dilated Cardiomyopathy is a state in which heart’s left ventricle is unable to pump an adequate amount of blood due to enlargement or weakening.

Rumors of foul play were doing circulation with reports of an anonymous woman accompanying Hauge to his Rio hotel after his body was found in the hotel room. Valuable were missing and a suspicion of Hauge being drugged also made rounds on online poker forums and the internet.

However, the autopsy has pulled out brakes to all the rumors doing rounds. With the effects of dilated cardiomyopathy, Hauge is considered to die a natural death.
