Chips Moving Around the Table

We're back to the point where none of the three players seems to have any traction. Most recently, Jeff Lisandro raised from the small blind to 100,000 and Mike Matusow called from the big blind. Both players drew two cards. After the draw, Lisandro immediately went all in. Matusow looked at his hand in disgust and folded.

Matusow's Roller-Coaster Ride.

Mike Matusow is sliding backwards a bit. He raised to 100,000 from the small blind and Barry Greenstein called. Greenstein drew one after Matusow stood pat. When the draw was completed, Matusow checked to Greenstein, who bet 150,000. Matusow made the quick call with what he said was another 10-8. That couldn't beat Greenstein's 9-8.

Lisandro is Not Done Yet

Barry Greenstein had the button and raised to 100,000. Jeffrey Lisandro called from the small blind and Mike Matusow in the big blind came along as well.

Lisandro stood pat, Matusow took one, and Greenstein drew two. Lisandro checked as did Matusow. Greenstein used both hands to put out his 200,000 chip bet. With action over to Lisandro, he moved all in for 560,000.

Matusow thought for close to a minute before finally throwing his hand away. Greenstein's hand might have actually beat Mike's into the muck as he parted with it instantly. Matusow commented that he folded a {10-?} {8-?} low. Jeffrey Lisandro won the pot and rebounded to just over 1,000,000 chips.

Matusow Caught Making a Move

Barry Greenstein keeps catching Mike Matusow. This time, Greenstein raised to 100,000 before the draw and Matusow called from the big blind. Both players drew one card. After the draw, Matusow bet 130,000 and Greenstein quickly called. Matusow picked up his hand, looked at it, then tossed it into the muck. Greenstein showed a 10-7 anyway as the pot was pushed to him.

Just Call Him "The Hammer"

Mike Matusow continues to drive the pace at the final table. This time, sitting in the big blind, he called a raise to 100,000 from Barry Greenstein. Matusow drew one; Greenstein drew two.

After the draw, Matusow bet 100,000. Greenstein quickly called but couldn't top Matusow's 9-7.

"Yeah baby!" Matusow screamed, jumping up from his chair. "I'm on my way now, boys and girls."

He sat back down, then quietly added, "Where, I don't know."
