Mike Matusow Calls Phil Ivey a “Piece of Sh–“

Watch Mike Matusow Is Very Angry at Russ Hamilton on RawVegas.tv

Mike Matusow speaks his mind. They don’t call him “The Mouth” for nothing.

A few years ago, Matusow was the first major pro who really spoke out against Russ Hamilton (above, classic). He was right on for doing so, even if some pros questioned his story.

This week, Matusow took on Phil Ivey during an interview on The Hardcore Poker Show, who he called a “piece of shit” for suing Tiltware (below clip).

This time, while Mikey’s anger is valid, it’s directed at the wrong people associated with Full Tilt. Phil Ivey isn’t the one who didn’t mix player and operational funds. And Phil Ivey wasn’t the one who turned down a potential deal that could’ve paid back U.S. players and made the company financial viable again.

Not saying that Ivey is a saint, but with dissension in the ranks at Tilt, he’s not the one anger should really be directed at right now.

    Now the gloves are coming off!!! Matusow has always been mad at himself for missing his shot for a piece of FTP. Even now though he is part of that poker click and knows more about what is going on than probably Ivey himself. The most telling information is what the Mouth does not ever talk about. When players are getting their money back.

    Phil Ivey, a dirtbag? Who would have guessed. I could have told you this while I was dealing to him at the Trop in AC. Sleazy as hell.

    Mike the WASTE IS so full of SHYT. Someone typed In Mike probably knew more than PHIL. THE REAL PIECE of SHYT IS MIKE. FT was doing him a BIG FAVOR paying him 125k a month. Mike could of got In on the ground floor but said NO. SO HE BEGGED FT TO GIVE HIM A LITTLE, AND THEY DID 125K A MONTH. Mike will do ANYTHING to put ALL THIS OFF ON SOMEONE ELSE IT BEING (PI)

    Am I the only one who got the impression that Mikey was high on something when he made this recording?  His voice just sounded so weak. It didn’t have the energy I have come to associate with the Mouth when he’s mouthing off…
