That is brilliant. Matusow was not happy.

Can you blame him? When I first saw that I was SCREAMING at the screen. I have to admit I lost a little respect for Matusow after seeing that.

the greatest part of the whole hand was after phil bet 40K on river, mike said "I know phil never bets the river if he really doesnt have it." i about died, and im sure hellmuth did as well!

I love the fact that before that hand mattusow is telling everyone what a fish hellmuth is. Glorious Timing! I love phil hellmuth so much more after this.

Hello [FIRST POST]

well, mattusow scared the 3 of kind and with a 40K on the river, he can fold KK, he made an mistake to not BIGraise the flop, but maybe he wants to made a trap to Hellmuth, if the river was a deuce, it would be better :)

No, I am with Esfandiari on this one. After the hand was over, mouth all agape, "HOW COULD HE FOLD KINGS THERE?"

Yup that pretty much summed up my feelings.

its a huge fold, maybe mattusow was trying to look good on the cameras and just misplayed the situation?

WOW, that was amazing, i am a fan of Matusow but he really does get himself in trouble with the stuff he says "fish" "never bets big on the river if he doesnt have anything"
massive laugh, great video, thanx

Matusow played that terribly every street, as a result had basically no info on Hellmuth's holding and even then should have still made the call, instead making a 'hero' laydown which went wrong.

the best part of that is everyone had to give hellmuth $500, bc of the 7 2 rule they made that stated if anyone wins a hand with 2 7 then everyone owes that person $500...

What no one has mentioned is that Phil admits to knowing that Mike only had the one buy-in with him, so if he went bust there, then it was goodbye Mikey.

This would have added confidence to Phils betting and weakened Mikes ability to call the large bet on the end.

It's easy for us to criticize Mike there but we know what the card were. I wish I could lay down hands like that, when I need to.

na the best hand is when there are 2 limpers and farha raises blind from the button, the 2 limpers call. They both the check to farha who bets again on flop still without looking at his cards once, and the other 2 fold knowing he was betting blind

ROFL. WOW, that was some entertainment. I'm surprised Matusow wasn't raising.

The thing is, if Helmuth had pocket Qs or Js then his set would completely fit, so Matusow was either making a good laydown, and would be able to say how amazing he was, or he gets pwned!!
