Some players – like Tony G – are as famous for their mouth as they are their poker skills
1. Tony G
The king of verbal assault, Tony G has been serving up his finest trash talk for more than a decade. But the one incident that cemented his reputation was the destruction of Ralph Perry at the InterContinental Championship. See the legendary scene at tinyurl.com/tonygrubdown.
2. Luke Schwartz
Luke ‘FullFlush’ Schwartz has become notorious for his slanging matches with American online players durrrrr, trex313 and Urindanger, but his latest rant about Jay ‘pr1nnyraid’ Krantz’s girlfriend is going too far… ‘MY DOG WOULDNT EVEN FK HER COS SHES SUCH AN UGLY DOG.’
The Poker Brat always tries to act the innocent, but you only have to see his behaviour at the 2008 WSOP (tinyurl.com/idiotphil) to realise that as his poker powers wane his trash talk is on the rise.
4. Ilari Sahamies
Nosebleed online player Ilari ‘Ziigmund’ Sahamies has an entire 134-page thread devoted to his chat box vitriol on the 2+2 forum. It usually gets updated every week…
5. Mike Matusow
The Mouth became notorious for tilting players with his non-stop chatter and serial F-bombs at the 2005 WSOP, but has quietened down in recent times. Still, on his day he’s got an acid tongue.
