My thoughts on King of Vegas with Mike Matusow

I finally got to catch a little of the show yesterday. I can't say that anything about this format appeals to me. As much I wanted to LIKE the show, I couldn't endure a whole episode. The format goes like this:

1. Half the field plays a game like BlackJack. The other half plays "Red Dog" (which is a BS game where you bet on the dealers card landing in between your two cards. For example, if you have 7 K then the dealers card must be 8,9,10,J,Q. It's a sucker bet in my opinion.

2. The four worst players from each game have to play in the Texas Hold Em Death Match. I didn't make that name up, they really call it that...

3. What happens after that I dunno because I had to turn it off.

The players are clearly encouraged to trash talk each other and it comes off as being contrived and poorly executed. There's a guy named Chainsaw who says, surprisingly "Hey man, I'll break out the chainsaw on your ass"... Spare me.

My mother always said "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all". Good advice Mom, I'm done with this article.

You can play poker online with Mike at Full Tilt Poker. Mike plays there weekly along with pros like Phil Ivey, Jesus Ferguson, and Jennifer Harman.
