Mike Matusow goes broke

I've been hesitating to just come out and say that Mike is broke (online anyway) but I feel comfortable now saying just that. My hunch was sparked about a week ago when I watched Mike lose approx 120K playing multi-tables on Full Tilt. I had to step away for a bit but when I returned he was sitting at only one 100/200 LIMIT Omaha game. Yes folks, 100/200 LIMIT is small stakes for someone like Mike. Considering moments before he was playing 200/400 Pot Limit Ohama where pots reach north of 100K, this is the poor house people!

He lingered in the small stakes game for a while before logging off. That's when I began making some calls and sending out emails. It took me a few days to get the reports all lined up and double check the accuracy but it's now safe to say that Mike The Mouth is broke.

Consider the following exchange that took place after Mike went completely bust in a heads up hand with "tehdrunky" at a 100/200 NL table:

Dealer: tehdrunky shows a pair of AcesDealer: Mike Matusow shows a pair of Sevens
Dealer: tehdrunky wins the pot ($18,796.50) with a pair of Aces
Mike Matusow: woow
Mike Matusow: i run awfull in poker
tehdrunky: =(
tehdrunky: sick
Mike Matusow: drunkey
Mike Matusow: cna u sen dme money tilltomrowo
Mike Matusow: know ones online
Mike Matusow: and im in florida up allnight
Mike Matusow: up to u
Mike Matusow: no biggy if not
tehdrunky: sorry mikey dont know you well enough

While many people on various forums have seen this exchange and claim that Mike must have been drunk, I have to respectfully disagree. I railbird the big games all the time on Full Tilt and he types that way ALL THE TIME :)

For the last few days, Mike has been absent from the tables at Full Tilt. When he returns is anyones guess but it probably won't be long before he gets a loan from someone and hits the felt.

In other news, I just watched Phil Ivey bust Devmo at the 1000/2000 limit Holdem game at Full Tilt. Devmo did rebuy for 30K and won a little back but then Phil left the table. If you're wondering who Devmo is, I did a little more detective work and BOOM! Here ya go

Don't just railbird the games at Full Tilt, PLAY THEM!
