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

Shaio Doubles Through Matusow

We have just had our biggest pot of the day, as Ramey Shaio has just doubled through Mike Matusow to jump him to over a million, and plummet Matusow to the short stack.

Action started with Matusow raising to 35,000, and it folded to Shaio, who three bet to 83,000. Matusow raised all in, and Shaio called him off. The cards were flipped, and we had a million chip race.

Matusow: {q-Spades}{q-Clubs}
Shaio: {a-Spades}{k-Spades}

The flop shot Shaio into the lead, coming {k-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}. Matusow would need a miracle queen, and while the turn was paint, it was the {j-Hearts}. The river was the {10-Spades}, and Matusow shipped 3/4 of his stack over to Shaio.

Ramey Shaio 1,060,000 510,000
Mike Matusow us 295,000 -521,000
