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

Shiu Leading Table 404

We caught up to table 404 to see Matt Matros raise from the button. Millie Shiu called from the small blind and Preston Derden decided to tag along from the big.

The flop fell {10-Clubs}{9-Spades}{5-Hearts} and all three players checked. Fourth street brought the {Q-Clubs} and two players checked to Matros who fired out a bet. Shiu folded and Derden called. The {K-Diamonds} completed the board and Derden checked to Matros for a third time. Matros bet out and Derden called.

"I've got a king," said Matros, showing {K-Clubs}{6-Hearts}. Derden looked remarkably peeved that Matros caught the king on the river and sent his hand sailing to the muck.

Despite winning this pot, three-time bracelet winner Matt Matros is trailing behind table chip leader Millie Shiu.
