Fitoussi Tank-Calls to Chop

Jan_Kores • Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 0 ante

Bruno Fitoussi completed from the small blind and Mike Matusow agreed to see the flop. It fell {2-Spades}{J-Clubs}{10-Hearts} and Fitoussi check-called 60,000.

The {5-Diamonds} turn saw Fitoussi check again and Matusow announced he was betting pot, making it 240,000. Fitoussi called again.

A low draw got there with the {6-Diamonds} river and Fitoussi checked for one more time. Matusow tossed in a bet of 300,000 and Fitoussi spent over two minutes contemplating his decision.

Then he made the call, saying: "You confused me with the bet on the turn."

"I don't have much," Matusow said and opened {7-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{4-Clubs} for a seven-six low and a pair of sixes. They chopped the pot as Fitoussi tabled {A-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{10-Spades}{5-Spades} for a set of tens.

"Where's My Rail?"

Jan_Kores • Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 0 ante

Under the gun, Mike Matusow raised to 150,000 and Bruno Fitoussi defended his big blind.

Matusow bet another 150,000 on the flop of {K-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{9-Spades} and Fitoussi check-called.

The {J-Clubs} turn discarded any potential low draws and both players checked to see the {A-Clubs} river. Fitoussi and Matusow skipped the final betting round as well and Fitoussi turned up a pair of tens. Matusow revealed {A-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{2-Hearts} and scooped the pot.

The spectators remained quiet and Matusow turned to them, asking: "Where's my rail?" He encouraged his fans who started applauding and shouting, "Come on Mike!"

Fitoussi Enjoys the Spades

Jan_Kores • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 0 ante

Bruno Fitoussi limped in from the first position and Christopher Conrad made it 225,000 in the cutoff. Fitoussi reached to his stack and matched the offered price.

The dealer rolled out a flop of {10-Spades}{5-Spades}{J-Spades} but no bets were made. So the {9-Spades} appeared for free and Fitoussi took the betting lead, firing 200,000. Conrad double checked his cards and threw them away.

Matusow Wins Double Getting it in Bad "for the First Time since 2005"

Jan_Kores • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 0 ante
Mike Matusow
Mike Matusow

Mike Matusow was in the small blind, raising to 100,000. Christopher Conrad defending his big and Matusow continued for 95,000 when the {9-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds} hit the felt. Conrad potted and they ended up all in.

Matusow didn't like the showdown, learning that his {Q-Spades}{4-Spades}{5-Hearts}{3-Hearts} had kicker trouble against {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{7-Spades}.

But the {3-Spades} turn gave him a boat. "That's a good one," Matusow said, waiting for the river. It was a harmless {2-Clubs} and Matusow doubled up.

"Mark that down! This was the first time since '05, when I won that ace-queen against ace-king, when I got it in bad and won."
