Mike owes who? How much?

You gotta love virtual railbirding, where the chatter from the rail is wrapped up in nice, formatted text and ripe for publication on blogs like mine. Last night on Full Tilt, Mike didn't disappoint as he delivered what the railbirds wanted, kept the players at the table entertained, and was on the receiving end of a loan request for once (one that he never acknowledged interestingly enough).

So we start the evening off with Mike Matusow playing lower than usual limits at the 25/50 PL Omaha Hi/Lo game.

Nothing too eventful for the first 20 minutes or so after I started watching. Along with the rest of the railbirds, we all were waiting for Mike to go broke. About 25 minutes in, he doesn't disappoint.

Dealer: HakAllah shows [Kd Kc 8d 8s]
Dealer: Mike Matusow shows [Jh 4c Qh Ad]
Dealer: HakAllah shows a full house, Eights full of Fours, for high
Dealer: Mike Matusow shows a full house, Fours full of Jacks, for high
Dealer: HakAllah wins the pot ($5,753) with a full house, Eights full of Fours
Mike Matusow: normal
Dealer: Hand #1288884506
chiTown03 (Observer): uh oh
HakAllah: yah lucky
A little more random chatter followed and then Roland de Wolfe (who had been chatting it up for some time) ASKS MIKE FOR A LOAN!
Roland de Wolfe (Observer): mikey send me 5k i wan tin

Interestingly, Mike didn't reply to his direct request for loan. Given the common public knowledge of Mike borrowing from many of the players on Full Tilt, I find it interesting that he chose not to loan Roland any cash. Roland is a known pro player, hell he's playing live right now on the Full Tilt Poker Championship at Red Rock on Fox Sports Network as I write this! Karma Mike, it's a bitch...

The remainder of the entertainment for the evening was gleaned from various chatter between Mike and the other players at the table. In no particular order I'll recap below:

Apparently Texas Limit King has been banned from Full Tilt Poker for collusion! There was a ton of chatter regarding this so take that with a grain of salt. He has been conspicuously absent from the high limit games lately but that doesn't mean that he's done something ominous either. I'm going to contact my inside guy at Full Tilt to confirm/deny this so keep an eye out for another post to follow up on this.

There was also quite a bit of talk regarding Mike owing several players money that was promised to them. The largest amount owed apparently is to 10lbBass to the tune of 50K. Apparently 10lbBass was complaining publicly in the chat window about this. I'll report on this one as it develops as well. The only other tidbit related to loans was Mike going to ProfBackwards AKA Ted Forrest's house to give him 20K in cash so that Ted would shoot 20K into Mike's Full Tilt account.

Perhaps the most telling comment of the evening came straight from "The Mouth", if you'll excuse the pun:

Mike Matusow: wellllets c i never had a losing month inliv epoker in my life and never cashed out online hmm

This was his reply to a short discussion regarding whether high limit players should be allowed to use fake names online. Mike feels strongly that any player above 25/50 NL should be required by the poker room to use their real name. This is a debate for another day but his comment above about never cashing out online is very telling. When you take into account that massive amounts that Mike has been seen with at various times online, think about just how much he's lost! If he's honestly never cashed out, that number runs easily into the millions. What did I say a few days ago about Mike being addicted to online poker?

Well the rumours about TLK banned from FTP started on the 2+2 forums. ( http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/showflat.php?Cat=0&Number=8130193&page=0&fpart=1&vc=1)

TexasLimitKing is Alexandros Dalaklis: http://www.compatiblepoker.com/Alex+Dalaklis.pro.htm, and http://www.cerebrals.com/members/individuals/alexandrosdalaklis.htm. From the last link we can see the man is not humanly smart (mensa, CIVIQ). He plays only limit which in my opinion is highly a mathematical game. And also I think it must be possible to detect the betting patterns of your opponents. The rumours said he used another software program; to predict the betting patterns of his opponents, or (from the 2+2 forum) to detect cards are not randomly dealt on FTP. Since the guy is so succesfull on other pokersites as well, I don't believe this.

Enough about TLK, let's talk about our hero Mikey. Do you think the guy is totally broke? He said to the rail that he would quit sportsbetting for a year. I asked him 'promised?', but he didn't answer that. I really think he owes people more money then I make in ten years! I hope he will get smart in the future and quit online poker too.

Yeah Mikey is not the only person who thinks people playing high stakes should play under their own name. John D'Agistino thinks the smae. John even revealed some of the pro's playing on FTP (http://pokerforums.fulltiltpoker.com/viewtopic.php?t=14367&highlight=cmynuts). Everybody knows by now how Mikey plays, and when he is almost tilting. That is one point why he loses. The other thing is that is he so broke he can't play his A game. He plays way tighter then he used to. Maybe he would be better of to play another pokersite, for exampe the ipokernetwork, under a new nickname. As long as he is not going to chat with rail, I think he would do great. With the typing and spelling skills of Mike he would be easily detected ;-)
