Matthaei led out for 10,500 and Collins folded his hand.
A couple of hands later, Gregory Kolo opened the betting with an early position raise to 8,000. Collins called from the big blind then checked when the flop fell . Kolo continued his aggression with a continuation bet of 12,000 but quickly ducked out of the way when Collins responded with a check-raise to 25,000.
