Mike Matusow Threatens To Punch Slow Rolling Shaun Deeb

Mike Matusow Threatens To Punch Slowrolling Shaun DeebNo one enjoys being slow rolled, not least Mike Matusow, who famously went on one of his rants in 2011 while playing a $1k Super-Turbo Sit and Go on Full Tilt Poker. As the 45 year-old explained at the time:
“Playing super turbos guy rses i ship 77 he types in i usually wouldnt call but i hear you run bad 1 sec left calls with aa name Scoss, scum..Want everyone who knows this scumbag or is friends with him to know hes lucky i dont have him removed from full tilt name Scoss.”
Well, this time around Mike Matusow has suffered the same experience while playing a live $25/$50 NLHE cash game as part of Poker Night in America TV show. On this occasion it was high-stakes pro Shaun Deeb who committed the frowned upon practice in poker, although you wouldn’t tell it from the reaction of the other players at the table.
In the hand in question, Shaun Deeb took around half a minute to decide whether to call Matusow’s all-in bet for $4,575 holding quad fives on a 10-5-5-4 board. Matusow (J-J) then tried to stay calm after the table erupted in fits of laughter, before volunteering:
“I’ve never slowrolled anybody in my entire life. I never will.”
Following a short break, a fuming Mike Matusow then threatened to quit the game, after which Deeb offers a semi-apology during which an irate Matusow steams in with:
“It’s the only thing in life I don’t f***ing deal with..If you ever f***ing slowroll me I’ll punch you in the f***ing mouth. You think I’m joking, I’m not.”
The slowroll may have been hilarious and disrespectful in equal measure, but to his credit Matusow proved a good sport, maybe because of the low stakes involved or because he realized Deeb was just trying to spice up the TV show. Either way, Matusow stayed playing in the game until the end.
