Yehuda Buchalter was the bring in and it folded around to Francesco Barbaro who completed. Mike Matusow called from the next seat over and it folded back to Buchalter who folded as well.

On fourth street, Barbaro continued his aggression with a bet and Matusow called. The same action occurred on fifth, sixth, and seventh street with Barbaro leading and Matusow calling. At the showdown, Barbaro rolled over {6-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{3-Hearts} for a heart flush, prompting Matusow to muck his cards.

Barbaro picked up the pot and now has about 145,000 in chips. Matusow, on the other hand, has dropped to 60,000.
