"You Might Vomit"


We were walking near Table 17 moments ago, when a player wanted to tell us about a sick hand Noah Schwartz played.

"I don't know if you can handle it," Mike Matusow interjected. "You might vomit."

We assured The Mouth that we can stomach almost anything, so the table began recounting the hand. According to the players, Schwartz opened to 300, a player on his left called, and another player on the button three-bet to 1,300. Schwartz called, and then the player on his right potted to 5,550. The player on the button and Schwartz called.

The flop came {5-}{8-}{10-} with two spades, and Matusow said that Schwartz, "smashed the flop." We're assuming that means he got the money in, because all three players' hands were shown down:

Opponent 1{a-}{a-}{7-}{8-}
Opponent 2{k-Spades}{q-Spades}{j-}{10-}

The turn was the {j-Diamonds}, giving Opponent 2 extra outs to scoop, but the river was a none-spade four, giving Schwartz the best hand.

"Bink," Matusow added at the end of the story, along with his signature cackle.

Schwartz hasn't cashed in either of his 10,000-chip lammers, but if you combine them with the chips he has in play, he's basically doubled up.
