Event #56: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em

Matt Matros, Blessed Art Thou

Matt Matros (after winning Event #52): straight flushin' like a boss!

It must be really nice to be Matt Matros right about now.

Only two nights ago, he shipped his second WSOP bracelet in the $2,500 Mixed Hold'em event. He's a published author. He's got a well-groomed beard. And it doesn't seem like his run-good is about to end either, as he's now doubled his starting stack and then some after this amazing hand.

On a flop that read {2-Spades}{6-Clubs}{8-Clubs}, the player in the big blind checked to Matros who led out for 300. Another player in middle position folded and the button called before the big blind folded, making it heads-up to the turn of the {7-Clubs}.

Matros led out for 525, but the button re-raised to 1,625. Matros snap-shoved and the button insta-called.

Now, we did warn you that Matros' run-good hasn't ended, so you've probably worked out by now what he's holding here.

Y'all ready for this?

Button: {7-Spades}{7-Hearts}
Matros: {5-Clubs}{4-Clubs}

The river was the {J-Clubs}. Not that anybody cares - we bet you're all still picking up the pieces of your skull off the floor after having your minds blown.
