Negreanu and Matusow Enraged by Golden Knights Penalty Loss
25 Apr

It seems that some of the top pros get more angry at sports results than poker ones, Daniel Negreanu and Mike The Mouth Matusow among those raging at last night’s Las Vegas Golden Knights loss – the referee at the centre of the drama…

The Stanley Cup play-off game against the San Jose Sharks had seen Negreanu’s favourite hockey team build up a big lead in a night of high drama at the SAP Center in California…

…but a series of questionable decisions saw their opponents overcome the deficit, eventually winning in overtime – and sending the poker community’s hockey fans into a frenzy.

Matusow ranted that “Refs stole this game from Vegas complete and utter bullshit!” in a series of tweets…

…and not even a massage could calm the poker legend down…

Dan O’Brien was another Golden Knights fan who was dismayed at the refereeing decisions that led to the remarkable turnaround…

It wasn’t just the players who were fuming, ESPN’s World Series of Poker commentator Norman Chad in disbelief, sparking off some poker-related parallels

It seems that whenever the poker scene goes a bit quiet in the drama department, the main players will always find something to set Twitter alight!
