Mike Matusow

A player had opened and Mike Matusow three-bet from the button to 76,000. Janet Hornung four-bet all in for 121,000 from the big blind and the initial raiser folded.

"The worst part about calling," said Matusow as he deliberated, "Is that I have to show..."

"Hand in the cookie jar," muttered someone at the table as Matusow committed his chips to the pot.

Janet Hornung: {a-Hearts}{j-Clubs}
Mike Matusow: {7-Spades}{3-Hearts}

The flop {j-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} gave Hornung trips and left Matusow drawing very slim. The turn and river {4-Diamonds}{5-Spades} changed nothing and Hornung doubled up.

"I was waiting to get him," said Matusow. "And this is what happens.

"Waiting and waiting...letting him and letting him..."
