Event #6: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

Matusow And Eveslage Continue to Trade Blows

[user169806] • Level 7: 200-400, 50 ante

The clash between Mike Matusow and Chad Eveslage is exciting to watch and has seen the chip lead change hands on a number of occasions. Right now it is Matusow who holds a slender advantage, which is partly down to a hand that took place less than a minute ago.

Eveslage opened to 1,000 from the button and Matusow responded by three-betting to 3,000. Eveslage riffled some 100 chips before tossing two yellow 1,000 chips into the middle of the table to make the call.

Neither player seemed too interested in the {4-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{3-Hearts} flop and it as checked to the {3-Spades} turn. It was here that Matusow took the initiative, setting the price to play at 2,100. Those betting chips hadn't been on the felt long when Eveslage relinquished his hand.

Advantage Matusow, albeit by the smallest of margins.
