When we arrived at Matt Matros' table him and Mark Darner were deeply involved in a hand. At this point, Darner was confirming the amount of Matros' five-bet and then announcing a six-bet. It was here that Matros seven-bet all-in. Darner snap called and Matros said, "Have you got aces?" as he turned over . When Darner turned over , the whole table erupted, none more so than Mike Matusow who got out of his chair and shouted, "I've seen a lot of things in poker, but never that many bets with ace-king."
"This is for the tournament right here," said Matusow as he had yet to calm down and take his seat.
Darner had over 300,000 behind when he made the all-in call and Matros watched on as the dealer spread a flop on the felt. He was good so far and if he won this pot, he would have over a million in chips - which would almost be the chip average heading into the final table. The on the turn was also safe, but there was still one card to come.
Matros, the whole table and most of the room couldn't believe what they just saw. Matros sent the majority of his stack to Darner who now holds a big chip lead over the field.
