If thought Mike Matusow was loud before, wait until you see him eviscerate his latest adversary in Phil Hellmuth. The two have squared off on TV many times before, but this is the first time Matusow gets the better of Hellmuth without having to sweat the river.
By the time the hand in question breaks out between the two players, they have already poked each other numerous time from their neighboring seats. Then the hand develops with Matusow officially put at risk by Hellmuth.
The second Matusow flips over his hand, we are treated to ‘The Mouth’ trifecta of a speech, song, and phrase as he exclaims Hellmuth got “Set up like a dog!”
Only Matusow can conjure up such phrases in a limited time span, which explains why he received so many Poker After Dark invites during the show’s original prime.
Hellmuth doesn’t take his signature hat off to often, but when he does, it’s usually a bad sign for what is about to happen next.
Step into the bright light of THE VAULT and watch Hellmuth and Matusow add another chapter to their decade-long rivalry.
