Mike Matusow has been flamed on Twitter for inviting stakers to invest in him at an eye-watering 1.5 markup for the WSOP 2021. He tweeted that he was selling up to 50% of all his action in the more prestigious $10,000 buy-in events and claimed to have had only one losing year at the world’s biggest poker festival.
I’m selling 50% of all my wsop 10 k or higher @YouStake come checkout my package! I’m giving a free 25% in my smaller tourneys for free to anyone who buys half of my 10 k or higher events! My poker games been real sharp & I’ve only lost 1 yr @wsop! Good luck us! #positivity

Many will be thinking that very few players are worth this kind of markup, let alone a guy who is known to mostly play on borrowed money these days.
It didn’t take long before a poster cried out that he was another of the boycotters getting ready to play.
After the Twitter storm following the WSOP’s vaccine mandate, Mike Matusow was one of many, including Kristen Bicknell and Alex Foxen, who supported a boycott of the event.
Others were decidedly more vicious with their response.
“So amazing the guy with all of the answers who calls people sheep every day is 50+ and broke. Begging on Twitter for money that he would have a lot of if he was actually good at poker and not a drug addict.”
Pros selling action is nothing new, especially when so many events are scheduled within a short space of time. Matusow might not be the player he once was but we think there’s nothing wrong with him looking for staking, he just shouldn’t be charging so much.
Mike Matusow and Eric Froehlich get into a Twitter fight
Mike Matusow even managed to get into a Twitter fight with Eric Froehlich during one of his rants about vaccines and Covid-19 in general.
After Matusow posted abuse directed at American virologist Anthony Fauci, Froehlich responded in a way that insinuated that he believes Matusow has mental health issues and needs help.
I appreciate that you’re crying out for help and truly hope you have people in your corner to help you stay on the path and on your meds. Your interview with Doug showed how great your heart is even when your mind betrays you. Wishing you nothing but the very best.

Mike Matusow and Dan Bilzerian Agree on Vaccine Mandates
And as if he wasn’t already getting into enough arguments on Twitter these days, Mike Matusow has teamed up with Dan Bilzerian in seeing who can shout the loudest over the unpopular vaccine mandates.
Me too and 100% agree! https://t.co/of0DzhGLeu

Neither seem to be aware that when it comes to the vaccine issue people don’t tend to change their mind and the argument will continue.
We dread to think what kind of a social media mess these two could create if they posted in the same threads more regularly.
CNN doesn’t report news it just pumps continuous propaganda. “She was vaccinated and still died of Covid.” Fixed that caption for you pic.twitter.com/cCSQSNlSML

We also look forward to seeing how Mike Matusow handles his fans abusing him for not following through with his threat of a boycott.
