Matusow Tanks and Folds to DiVella

• Taso 1: 50-100, 0 ante

Mike Matusow limped from middle position as the small blind completed. With the action on Nick DiVella in the big blind, he raised to 350 and only Matusow called as the flop landed {3-Spades}{7-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} and DiVella checked.

Matusow bet out 550 and DiVella check-called as the {A-Spades} landed on the turn and DiVella checked a second time. Matusow instantly tossed in 1,500 and DiVella paused momentarily before splashing out a raise to 5,500.

Taking only a few moments himself, Matusow called as the {2-Hearts} completed the board and DiVella bet out 12,900.

Matusow then went into the tank for several minutes before stating, "I flopped top two pair on this thing."

Another five minutes went by before Matusow stated, "I don't know what to f***ing do!"

Matusow then lifted his hand up so that people behind him could see if they wanted to peek. Eventually Matusow slammed his hand onto the muck pile and conceded the pot to DiVella as he slipped to 23,050. DiVella on the other hand scooped the pot to move to over 41,000 in chips.
