Event #39: $1,500 Seven-Card Stud Hi-Low 8-or-Better

Aggression Pays Off For "The Mouth"

[user169806] • Lygis 7: 400-800, 100 ante

Mike Matusow: {X-}{X-} / {6-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{4-Spades}{3-Spades}
Opponent: {X-}{X-} / {2-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{9-Hearts}

Mike Matusow led on third street and when his opponent checked on fourth, Matusow bet again. His opponent called before checking fifth. Again, Matusow bet and was called. Sixth was checked by the player in Seat 1 and Matusow said "I bet," but before his chips had landed on the felt, his opponent had folded.

Aggression paid off for Matusow, although it does help when you have four to the straight showing and two separate flush draws, too.
