It was a raging Mike Matusow who took to Twitter to berate a longtime poker rival, believed to be Daniel Negreanu, for calling the floor on him not once, but twice, during the $50k Poker Players Championship – Matusow claiming he made ‘genuine mistakes’ and wasn’t angleshooting


Although Mike the Mouth wasn’t naming names, and the live updates weren’t talking about what happened for some reason, there were clear signs that old rival ‘Dnegs’ was the ‘culprit’…


Mike sharing ‘bad beat’ stories isn’t exactly new, but this double-trouble situation was a bit different, with fans split on who was at fault and what should have happened…



Mike even set polls up on his Twitter account, although with more fans than critics it might not give the clearest results…



Matusow bust out shortly afterwards, his 33rd spot decent but short of the money – his $50k buy-in helped a few days ago by Phil Hellmuth’s staking appeal for his good friend and Mike appreciative of the chance…


...but there were some who felt Mike should ‘man up’, especially with so much on the line…


…and some recent angleshooting/cheating incidents were quickly brought…


If it was indeed Negreanu who called the floor twice, it probably isn’t hugely surprising, despite Matusow’s appeal to ‘old friends’…

…the pair clashing on Twitter during the 2016 presidential elections, with Negreanu coming off much the worse in the fallout from his highly personal attack on Matusow.
