    Evan Mathis, ex nfl player, has to be one of the worst players I ever saw

    This was on nbc sports last night. 6 handed 100/200. It was him, 3 other random guys, Jen Tilly, Antonio Esfandiari.

    He was in a hand against the one old guy who made it 800 with KJoff he flat called the button with AJoff. Flop was 3h10hjx. Old guy bets 1600 he makes it 4000, gets called. Turn 9x checks through. River 2h. Old guy bets 3500 into exactly 10k and he folds. I know a lot got there, but the old has to have QJ and JK a lot, maybe another AJ for a chop. I could see folding to a bigger bet, but that seemed awful.

    So he nits it up there, and then proceeds to frequently try and bluff Antonio off hands, and never succeeds. Gasses off probably 60k at least. Makes no sense to go after him at such a weak table.

    Just wondering if anyone saw this or any other time he played.

    The one former NFL player I've played with was Def Tackle Richard Seymour.

    Let's just say that he wasn't the 2nd coming of Stu Ungar. Stacked off w/ 99 vs AA on a AKK board vs an Old Guy.

    Old Guy says: "If u have pocket Kings...I have to pay u off."

    Mathis made a bunch of money in his career, he can afford it.

    Seymour has actually had some pretty good tournament results and has been taught by some really good players.

    I played in a local tournament years ago and was sitting next to Chargers DT Jamal Williams. Needless to say, I was a bit cramped he took up a lot of space.

    Yeah, I have heard Seymour is pretty good, though I really havenít seen him play. Quite possible he was terrible and got coached.

    Mathis sold a Mickey mantle rookie card for like 2.5 mil or something crazy. To see him play so tight against the old man and just throw money around against the best one at the table seemed to be an odd strategy, almost like a team up 10 going no huddle with 4 minutes left. I would understand if he was putting pressure on everyone but that wasnít the case.
