Matusow drew one card. Lisandro stood pat.
Matusow checked in the dark to Lisandro, who moved all in for 320,000. Matusow peeled his card.
"I made my hand," he said. "I didn't want to make my hand."
He tanked for about a minute, then decided to make the call.
"Ten," said Lisandro.
Matusow leaned over the table. "Ten what?"
"Ten-eight," replied Lisandro.
"Ten-eight what?" asked Matusow again.
Both players turned their hands over. Matusow showed 10-8-7. Lisandro showed 10-8-5 to survive and double up back to about 1 million in chips.

Lisandro was first to act and he bet 250,000. Mike Matusow took about 30 seconds and then announced, "All in." Lisandro gave up his hand fairly quickly and Matusow's gallery eruprted once again. Matusow, perhaps wanting to add a little fuel to the fire, proudly displayed the
from his hand as he mucked.
Lisandro, apparently wanting to derail Matusow's momentum, showed a pair of threes proving that he was in fact beat. Despite the showmanship, Mike Matusow won the pot and left Lisandro with roughly 650,000.
