Robert Cowen raised to 50,000 and Mike Matusow came along in the big blind.

The flop was {8-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{8-Spades} and Matusow check-called a bet of 40,000.

Both players checked the {q-Diamonds} turn to the {q-Spades} river and Matusow led for 55,000. Cowen raised to 135,000 and Matusow called. Cowen tossed his hand in the muck face down and Matusow tabled {8-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{x-}{x-} for a full house.

"I couldn't respect myself if I folded," said Cowen.

"At least you know you're giving chips to a nice guy," said Matusow.
