CoolioHahahaha ,

Surprisingly bad.

Listened to the episode where they talked about matasows behavior on his you tube channel after his bad play and what he perceived as a slow roll. What he said is unforgivable, it’s bad enough that he freaked out on another player calling her names and saying what he was going to do to her when he sees her but then to hear Sarah supporting mike and thinking it’s funny is just unbelievable. He’s not a character, he’s a criminal and there should be consequences.
Yet Sarah continues to laugh and support this monster. People who berate other players in poker shouldn’t be allowed to do so. How do you hear what was said and laugh about it thinking it’s funny because he’s a “character”. People who berate other players shouldn’t be able to get away with it because of their fame and classification as a “character” in poker, and a poker reporter should never support or condone this kind of behavior. Sad
