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.
