Matt Jarvis is probably most well known for being part of the 'November Nine' in 2010. He took 8th in that event to finish with a score over $1 million. Last year he proved his worth as a professional poker player when he took down the WSOP bracelet in the $5,000 No-Limit Holdem Six-Max event. He has had a great start to this event, despite seeing him recently lose a pot.
It started when Yevgeniy Timoshenko opened the pot to 225 preflop. The player directly on Timoshenko's left made the call, along with Jarvis in the big blind.
The flop would see Jarvis check and Timoshenko throw out a bet of 350. The player on his left again called and this time Jarvis check-raised to 950. It was too much for timoshenko, but the other player made the call.
The on the turn would see Jarvis slowly bet 1,100. Another call from his opponent and a would peel off on the river. This time Jarvis flicked out a stack of 5,000-denomination chips - enough to put his opponent all in.
The player gave a bit of a shrug and then threw all his chips in. At this point Jarvis turned over for a turned flush. "What do you have?" the man asked, apparently unable to see Jarvis' hand. When the table obliged with an answer, the man confidently turned over his for the nut flush.
