Poker Tweets: Tsoukernik and McKeehen in the Doghouse!

November 13th, 2017 Author:

Tsoukernik and McKeehen in the Doghouse!Back in May, Czech casino owner Leon Tsoukernik lost $3 million to Australian poker pro Matt Kirk at the Aria casino in Las Vegas. Tsoukernik then apparently paid Kirk only $1 million of the money he lost during the poker session, with the two players now embroiled in a high-profile lawsuit. According to Tsoukernik, both Kirk and the Aria were responsible for his losses due to neglect, manipulation, and ploughing him with too much alcohol to play or read his cards properly.

Needless to say, the poker community has been weighing in with their own take on the issue, with some of the more interesting reactions noted below:

Leon Tsoukernik’s Debt


“Casino Owner Says He Was Tired, Drunk When He Lost $3M In Controversial Poker Game”

Matthew Parvis

“This is what I was hearing right after the game happened. I overheard one player say (paraphrased) “if it was any other poker room in the world and not Ivey’s Room the dealer would have stopped the game.”

Doyle Brunson

“This is so stupid. Anybody that knows Matt Kirk knows he would bet his last dollar when he gets in heat. U need a witness Matt, call me.

Kevin Smith

“I agree Dolly. Even though I don’t know him personally, when you borrow money from someone… you pay them back. Especially when you are a multi-millionaire.”

Phil Galfond

“I wasn’t there but can almost guarantee all those claims are false. No chance Aria floor is conspiring with Matt, bringing Leon drinks he didn’t order, or preventing people from helping him.”

Bill Chen

“Look I understand, he was drunk and made some bad decisions. Even a math guy like me sympathizes. So long as the same consideration is given when we visit his place right?”

Michael McCray

“Shit I would go get hammered and play at his place then when I lose everything sue him for it back plus some. Bam! Profit based on his own precedence.”

Joe McKeehen Coaching Reactions

Meanwhile, Joe McKeehen may have taken down the 2015 WSOP Main Event for $7,683,346, but it seems that he has not won the affection of many in the poker community who seem to view him of being too aloof. After Chip Leader Coaching subsequently announced it was offering poker coaching lessons with McKeehen, here are some of the unflattering tweets that were posted thereafter:

Chip Leader Coaching

“Welcome new #CLCcoach Joe McKeehen! He has EIGHTEEN TITLES including this one (??) and can teach you about closing on”


“After your tweet about the stats, I thought “those sound like joe McKeehen’s stats”… I then thought “nah no way joe would ever do a coaching thing where he has to talk to people”

Christopher Larrea

“He’s gonna have to unblock alotta people for them to get coached.”

Harry Doyle

“#JoeMcKeehen has the personality of a microwave….this smelly douchebag needs his own personality couch & a f*ckin shower..#SwampAss

Dick Norris

“Not the most personable brand ambassador”


Finally here are some other tweets posted by your favorite pros over the past few days:

Daniel Cates

“I think we should put all the guys who stare down at the poker table all at one poker table and stream it on the internet.”

Chris Moorman

“I fly with @Ryanair once every 3 years and always forget how fuming they make me so this time I’ll tweet about it so I never fly them again.”

Daniel Negreanu

“Renaming my Sunday rec league soccer team. Which name do you like best?”

Shaun Deeb

“Angle shooters”
