I admit it - I like Full Tilt's new Ad -

In it, Mike Matusow is making faces and shouting "The only thing bigger then MY MOUTH is the 100% signup bonus at full tilt"

While this is funny and acknowledges a number of things, there is one stated thing it doesn't announce but makes abundantly clear.

Mike Matusow has become a poker Celebrity - one of those we hold up high and gets lots of new admirers while the detractors hate him even more. He has a bankable personality and you can be damned sure he'll be at the next WPT badboys of poker.

But he's also a guy who has tempered tremendously - and has been as low as you can go, so I think he's gonna like these highs a lot more....

I'm rooting for him - unless he becomes a mega asshole again - LOL.

The Mouth is my favorite anti-hero. I like rooting for someone I don't want to emulate and wouldn't necessarily want to have a beer with.

Nice link to "The Grind" btw. Riveting stuff.

A very close friend of my works for Full Tilt in their Vancouver office. I don't play on there often, but they work very hard to deliver a sound product-- even with the major meltdown this past week. I see great things with FTP going forward.

As for Mike the Mouth. Every time I go on tilt online, I'm reminded of his so called meltdown where he yanked his monitor out of the socket and threw out the window into the pool.

email updates state they had a critical hardware failure and used that chance to also upgrade the software - I'll check it out later -

Um yah, that's a meltdown - LOL.
