Bring in the clowns………

Last night we saw Men “the Master” win his seventh WSOP bracelet. He did it in his own unique style…drinking, putting down the other players, and yelling at the wait staff…….

The poker community is littered with characters and has their fair share of well known “clowns”. This group includes Men, Phil Hellmuth, Humberto Brenes, Mike Matusow and Scotty Nguyen. These are guys we love to hate and some love to love. Men, Scotty and Phil are what I call, “clowns with malice” and will show their dark and vicious side. They will direct anger at any and everyone.

While Mike will take a dig here and there, he and Humberto are in the “clowns without malice” category….they like to talk and be the center of attention but not in a mean or hurtful way. Both can be obnoxious but not really mean spirited……..

These guys are in the overall “Clown” category but make no mistake about it…..they have game and they can play poker. Between them they have 28 WSOP bracelets…..262 WSOP cashes and have won about 20 million dollars in WSOP winnings.

The lesson today……….never underestimate a Clown…….
