Jerk amateurs are one thing...but why would someone who makes their living at the game be acting like a fool?
Speaking of mouthy pros, I was watching a tournament yesterday (I think it was the US Championship, but not sure) and Matusow had a jack with a board of J-2-2. Not sure how all the betting went, but he called bets all the way with a final board of J-2-2-2-T. Well, his opponent did indead have the 2 and the table went nuts. Even before the two was shown, another player sitting next to Matusow exclaimed, "OMG, man, he's got the two! He's got the two!". Several players gave Matusow a hard time about making these calls. Matusow wouldn't even make eye contact as he was finally getting back what he frequently dishes out.
AND NOW FOR MY FAVORITE MATUSOW QUOTE:
"I think I'm probably the most well-liked person on the tour, I think most people love me, I mean I have a lot of fun with people. I needle them, but I needle them in a nice way." - Mike "The Mouth" Matusow
