Event 25: $1,500 Limit Hold'em Shootout

Three-Time Bracelet Winner Off to a Good Start

Matt Matros opened with a raise from the cutoff only to find Matt Sterling three-bet on the button. Millie Shiu called from the small blind and it folded back to Matros who also decided to tag along.

The dealer pounded the table and spread out a flop of {9-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}. Shiu and Matros checked to Sterling who continued out with a bet. Both players called and the turn brought the {7-Spades}. Two checks back to Sterling and he tossed out yet another bet. Once again, he received two calls.

The {Q-Hearts} completed the board on the river and all three players checked. Matros tabled {Q-Clubs}{10-Hearts} for a rivered pair of queens and both of his opponents mucked their hands, allowing Matros to drag in a sizable pot early.
