Not much is known about Matthew Jarvis.
To start with, there is just a tiny bit of information available on his WSOP.com profile. According to that profile, Jarvis was born in Richmond, BC, Canada, and now resides in Surrey, BC, Canada.
Jarvis is a self-taught player who learned to play poker by "playing with his friends and by reading poker books".
Jarvis is currently attending university where he is studying to get a degree in business - no word on if his main event final table appearance will result in Jarvis putting his education on hold.
Matthew's father is Norm Jarvis, who is a professional golfer that has played on the Champions Tour.
Matthew plans on going to Mexico to relax before the final table gets under way in November.
Prior to his appearance at the main event final table, Matthew's largest ever cash came in the main event of the CPT River Rock in November of 2009. Jarvis ended up taking 11th place in that event for $20,237.
Some of Matthew's other sizable cashes:
$2k NLHE Venetian Deep Stack Extravaganza III, June 2010, $9,660
$1k NLHE Bellagio Weekly Tournament, June 2008, $5,240
$460 2008 Coast to Coast Poker Championship, May 2008, $3,579
Matthew Jarvis was the player who was finally able to put an end to the excruciatingly long "November Nine" bubble.
Jarvis and "November Nine" bubble boy Brandon Steven got into a pre-flop all-in confrontation. The two players turned up:
Jarvis - pocket Queens
Steven - A-K offsuit
The board ran out 4h-3d-10c-4c-5h and Brandon Steven was eliminated from the tournament in 10th place. The hand provided a much-needed chip boost to Jarvis, and he is now in a much better position heading into November thanks to that hand.
How will Matthew Jarvis do against more experienced players such as John Racener and Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi at the final table in November? We'll soon find out.
Regardless of how he does at the "November Nine" final table, one thing is already certain - Matthew Jarvis will walk away with a minimum of $811,823 for making it to the final table.
