Poker Tweets: Matusow Ponders What Constitutes Harassment!

Matusow Ponders What Constitutes Harassment!Mike Matusow still appears to be reeling after Vanessa Selbst called him a “disgusting, delusional, and downright pathetic human being” after a tweet that he made concerning the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment case. At the time, the 4-times WSOP bracelet winner wrote that everyone “knew you had to do sexual favors to make it in Hollywood! #hypocrites”, prompting a harsh response from a number of people, including Selbst.
This week, Matusow continued to explore the issue further, and tweeted the following open question:
“If im single and see a hot female poker player at table and i tell her how beautiful she is and would love to have a drink with her she says no thanks Mike but i persist for next 3 days i see her! Is this sexual harrassment!”
Needless to say, Matusow’s tweet soon received a similarly quick response from some of his followers, with the best ones listed below:
Liv Boeree
“Next time I get asked the classic question of “why don’t more women play poker?” I’m just gonna link them to this thread”
Michelle Orpe
“Not that I’ve ever lasted for 3 days ?? but I had this for 8hrs once at a poker table. After he bought me my 11th #beer it totally worked too ?? #persistancepays”
Jody Fayant
“What if a very effeminate gay man came up to you and did the same thing?”
Negreanu’s Pants Come Off
Meanwhile, Daniel Negreanu appears to have removed his pants during a high buy-in tournament at the Bellagio, with a rather bemused and surprised noting the bizarre incident in the following tweet:
Justin Bonomo
“I’m playing a $25,000 buy in Bellagio tournament, at the final table, and @RealKidPoker is sitting next to me literally taking his pants off. This is not a metaphor.”
While Negreanu appears to have had a good reason for the strip down, he’s not sharing, prompting a number of tweeters to offer their own take on the episode:
Daniel Negreanu
“There is an explanation I swear! Hahaha”
“No doubt using his classic “small ball” strategy.”
Kevin Chaffin
“He tried to go all in but was too short to even cover the big blind.”
Finally, here are some more tweets posted by your favorite pros over the past few days:
Allen Kessler
“This cant be fair. Lose to the table donk. I open queens he three bets. I shove having him covered. He calls off with KQ off. Of course I get rivered. Cmon this is a $2500 event. Left with scraps….”
Daniel Cates
“I don’t even play poker to win honestly, I just play to make people SWEAT. To be honest, only a crazy fucker would play poker for a living.”
Matt Glantz
“Finally lost to a girl in OFC today. Didn’t think it was possible, but it was bound to happen eventually. @natasha_mercier mangled me today w baby in hand.”
Daniel Negreanu
“So bizarre. This guy has owed me money for ages and he just dropped by with stacks of Bellagio chips. He says he’s been working on his under the gun game. Whatever that means.”
Lacey Jones
“When a homeless man in Venice thinks you’re a movie star, you know you’ve made it.”
