Mike Matusow Erupts After Getting Slowrolled Online

Mike “The Mouth” Matusow is a unique and colourful character in the world of poker, with around $7.4 million in live tournament wins and 3 WSOP bracelets to his name.
However, despite his obvious talent the 42 year-old pro has suffered from tilt issues in the past which has cost him days of hard play in the space of just a few minutes. In fact, so well-known is he for these outbursts that the term the “Mike Matusow Meltdown” is now a part of the poker dictionary.
True to form, Team Full Tilt member Mike Matusow went on a massive rant on his Tweet page this week after playing a $1k Super-Turbo Sit and Go on the site against a high-stakes pro called Scoss.
Apparently, the incident occurred during a hand in which Matusow’s opponent was deliberately trying to antagonise the volatile pro, and as he explains:
“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.”
Although the Full Tilt pro might seemed to have gone a bit over the top calling one of the sites customers “scum,” his reaction is consistent with the aggrievement a player feels having been subjected to the massive breech in poker etiquette known as ‘slow-rolling.’ 
This frowned upon practice basically aims to upset an opponent by giving them the impression they are ahead or have won a hand, only to pull the rug out under their feet at the last moment. This unsportsmanlike behaviour also has the uncanny effect of putting many a player on instant tilt, as was the case with Matusow who later tweeted:
“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.”
However, if it was Scoss’ intention to induce a trademark Mike Matusow tilt it seemed to have worked and Scoss ended up winning all three of the $1,000 Heads-Up Sit-n-Go’s he played, while Matusow booked a $6,110 loss after eight games.
