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

Sterling Gone; Matros On Top at Table 404

We caught up to see Matt Sterling raise before the flop. Thomas Corrigan called from the button and Matt Matros called from the big blind.

The flop was {10-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{4-Hearts} and action checked to Matt Sterling who continued out. Corrigan called and Matros pushed out a raise. Sterling three-bet and Corrigan got out of the way. Matros four-bet and Sterling called.

The {6-Diamonds} came on the turn and Matros bet out. Sterling called and the {Q-Hearts} fell on the river. Matros bet and received a call one more time before tabling {7-Clubs}{5-Clubs} for a straight. Sterling mucked his hand and was left with about 1,500.

The next hand Sterling got most of his chips all in before the flop against Millie Shiu and Thomas Corrigan. When Shiu bet out on {J-Hearts}{8-Spades}{2-Spades}, Corrigan called and Sterling put in his last 300. Shiu bet the {7-Diamonds} turn and Corrigan called into the side pot.

Both players checked the {J-Clubs} river and Corrigan turned up {A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} for ace high. Shiu and Sterling mucked their hands and Sterling became the first casualty of table 404.
