Default Hellmuth or Matusow

The 2 professionals with the least table manners in the game. Both have nicknames that show it Phil(The Brat) Hellmuth. And the world famous Mike(The Mouth) Matusow. But the real question here is who between the 2 is better. You can't argue that Phil Hellmuth is one of the greats after winning 9 Bracelets at the WSOP including 1 main event title. Also Mike Matusow making the final table at the 2005 WSOP and winning the Tournament of Champions you can't deny he is playing the best poker of his life.

My personal opinion is that Mike Matusow is the better of the 2 players. If u watch him at the tables he is probably the best bluffer I have ever seen. He just knows when the other players are weak. I think if I had to chose one of them to go further in the Main Event next year I'd pick Matusow. Not taking anything away from Phil but i believe matusow is the superior player.

I think 90% of the poker playing world hates Hellmuth. But he is a great player, but ill take matusow any day.

I pick Hellmuth. Matusow had one heck of a run in the WSOP this year, but let's not forget that he had his parents take his computer away because he was blowing so much money playing online poker and betting sports. Hellmuth gets pretty spastic but he has a stronger history and has always played good poker. He keeps his head well and is always solid.

Once you get through the whining and "blowup," I think it's an easier choice and I still go with Hellmuth.

Hellmuth..easy i personally don't have any respect for someone who claims he is the unluckiest player in the world and who also says Phil Ivey is the luckiest player in the world implying that is the only reason he was voted best poker player.

Thank you Agreen. That was the funniest but at the same saddest story I have ever heard. All of my friends got a good laugh out of it.

However, to the point. The mouth is the mouth. I would take Phil H. Any day because the mouth has a collapse named after him - The Matasou Blow Up. Saddly enough this does in fact happen quite often. Even in the WSOP Tour. Of champions, he was almost eliminated on one of these frustrated moves that player like us (non-professional may make).

While Phil is a jek (remember the incident at the WSOP - you cannot spell poker), he is a great player who at some point will have the most WSOP bracelets again. Heck, he may end up with over 20.
