Matros on the Move

Level 7 : 300-600, 75 ante

Matt Matros had just moved to a new table when a hand arose in which he opened with a raise to 1,600 from the small blind. His opponent in the big blind -- busy collecting his green chips in racks in preparation for the upcoming color-up -- tossed out chips to call.

The flop came a coordinated {Q-Spades}{J-Spades}{10-Hearts}, and Matros bet 1,600 again. His opponent, still occupied with the chip collecting, quickly called. The turn was the {3-Spades} and Matros again fired, this time 3,100. Again came another quick call.

The river brought the {K-Spades}, putting a fourth spade on board. Matros bet 8,500 this time, and finally his opponent stopped collecting chips to think about the situation. After a half-minute, he let his hand go.

Matros, the Event No. 52 winner ($2,500 Mixed HE), is up to 108,000.
