Not long before we witnessed this hand, Mike Matusow mentioned to us that he was having a hard time waking up. Maybe this hand is just what he needed.
Matusow raised from under the gun to 1,600. Action folded to the player in the big blind who reraised to 3,600. Matusow answered with four-bet to 6,000 and his opponent called.
The big blind checked the flop after it came , Matusow continued for 5,000 and the big blind insta-called. The player then check-called Matusow's bet of 5,000 on the turn.
The player again checked to Matusow on the river who bet 13,000. His opponent cut out the chips to call and was ready to put the chips in but stopped himself. He started shuffling chips and talking the through the hand. He eventually made the call and Matusow said, "I got lucky" as he table for a set on the turn. His opponent showed and just shook his head.
