Paul Michael Larson (May 10, 1949 February 16, 1999) was a contestant on the American television game show Press Your Luck on May 19, 1984. Larson's claim to fame was his winning US$110,237 (2010 value: $230,000) in cash and prizes, which he was able to do by memorizing the patterns used on the Press Your Luck game board. Michael Larson was an unemployed ice cream truck driver from Lebanon, Ohio, who lived an eventful but downtrodden life. He was married three times, the third by common law, and had little to do during the autumn of 1983 when ice cream wasn't selling well. So he watched a lot of television, especially game shows. One such show was Press Your Luck, which had premiered on CBS earlier in September.
