Event 16: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em - Six-Handed

Matusow Runs into Set

Action began with a player on the cutoff, who raised to 1,550. He was called by another player on the button and Mike Matusow squeezed for 3,025 more. The big blind got out of the way and both of his opponent's called.

The flop came {8-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} and Matusow asked to see his opponent's remaining stacks. He then announced, "All in," for about 20,000 total.

The player on the cutoff insta-called off the rest of his stack and the player on the button folded.

Matusow: {Q-Clubs}{J-Hearts} for top-pair and a gut shot.
Cutoff: {9-Diamonds}{9-Spades} for a set of nines.

The {4-Diamonds} turn and {J-Diamonds} river bricked for Matusow and he was forced to double his opponent up.

Matusow is back down to 11,000.

Mike Matusow us 11,000 -20,000
