Top 5 reasons to have a Matusow Meltdown at the 2006 WSOP

Top 5 reasons to have a Matusow Meltdown at this years WSOP Championship:

5. When your pocket Kings get cracked by the Internet player that called your big preflop raise with Ace Seven (cause they were sooooted!). Not because he hit this ace on the flop but because he chased the runner runner flush draw despite your oversized bets to get him out. Of course he hits.

4. Your flopped set of 7's loses to a backdoor double belly buster straight draw despite your agressive betting. When asked why he kept chasing his massive underdog draw, the winning player declares "I had pot odds man".

3. You're holding pocket Queens and on a flop of 2 3 Q with two hearts, you get THREE callers to your all in reraise. When the other three players turn up their hands they show 4 5, A 2, and 9 6 of hearts???? The ace comes on the turn giving one of the morons a straight and you're sent home packing.

2. You go all in preflop with pocket Aces, you amazingly get two callers. One has pocket 6's and the other has pocket Aces as well! You figure you'll both split the pot and eliminate the fish with the 6's. Oh not so fast buddy, the board comes blank, blank, SIX. To add insult to injury the turn brings another 6 giving the guy quads.

1. All in preflop, you turn up your pocket Jacks against a moron who called you with Ace Five offsuit. The flop comes KKK, the turn is a blank, and the river is the last King. Now you're left holding quad Kings with a Jack, and dipstick now has you outkicked with his (once) dominated hand.

All of the above are great reasons to have a true Matusow Meltdown. They're also all true.

Every hand you just read about above took place on day one of the 2006 WSOP event. With nearly every table full of Internet qualifiers who won their seat here for 5 and 10 dollars, it's the wild wild west. These guys are freerolling for the most part and play live worse than they play online. A few things overheard at the tables from these Internet noobs:

"What's a string bet?"
"When do I bet again?"
"How come that guy gets to go first?"

For most it's their first LIVE GAME EVER. For many it's a freeroll. For the pro's this is their living hell that is the 2006 World Series of Poker...

If you're reading this, you're not playing in the 2006 WSOP. Find something better to do with your time.

Great blog by the way!

That`s poker! Bad beat, bad call.. whatever...a winning call is a winning call. I am so sick of the excuse "oh he should have folded that!"

The examples above shows courage..if they hit then they deserve it cause they risked their tourney for that hand...

Luck and gut feeling are part of poker, so either learn to live with it or stop playing!

Why can`t people just be good losers? Congratulate the player and walk away.
