Mattern Part Two

Noah Schwartz raised to 12,000 preflop and found callers in Patrice Albert Sitbon and Arnaud Mattern in the small blind before the flop was dealt as {4-Diamonds} {6-Clubs} {3-Spades}.

It's checked to Schwartz who continued with a 27,000 bet that Sitbon called before Mattern raised to 120,000. Both players called creating a monster pot for a bubble hand.

Once the {8-Diamonds} fell on the turn, Mattern quickly moved all-in. Schwartz tanked so long that Mattern called the clock on him. Schwartz didn't let it run down and folded but Sitbon called fairly quickly with {5-Diamonds} {6-Diamonds} for an open ended straight draw and a gutshot straight flush draw, which he picked up on the turn. He was still behind though to Mattern's {6-Spades} {6-Hearts}.

The all important river came.... {2-Hearts} to make the straight for Sitbon who responded by yelling in delight. Mattern meanwhile sat there very quietly and took his beat like a true gent.

Sitbon upto 870,000, Mattern down to just 43,100 and Schwartz on 169,000.
