Event 9: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Re-Entry

One for The Mouth

We found three-time WSOP bracelet winner Mike "The Mouth" Matusow nursing a short stack over in the Pavilion room. A player opened to 250 and received a call from the button. Matusow decided to tag along from the big blind and the three players saw a flop of {6-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}.

Matusow checked and the original raiser continued for 325. The button folded and Matusow quickly called. Fourth street came the {7-Hearts} and Matusow checked once again. His opponent opted to check this time around as well, and the two both saw the {9-Hearts} strike the river.

Matusow fired out a relatively small bet of 250, and a perplexed look washed over the face of his opponent. After about twenty seconds, his opponent picked up his cards and flung them to the center of the table, awarding Matusow the pot.
