Event #7: €10,400 Main Event Championship

Mattern Rivered?

Arnaud Mattern opened to 7,000, and Brian Roberts three-bet to 20,500 from the big blind. Mattern called, and off they went.

The flop came {8-Diamonds} {Q-Diamonds} {J-Diamonds}, and we had to step away to watch a hand at the adjacent table, so we're not sure what the betting action was. When we checked back, the turn {8-Spades} was out on board, and Roberts had a bet of 42,000 out in front of him. Mattern called, and the {A-Clubs} completed the board. Roberts checked. Lifting his glasses, Mattern asked to see Roberts' chips. Both men had about 135,000 left in their stacks, and Mattern eventually checked it back.

Roberts tabled {A-Diamonds} {9-Spades}, and Mattern hissed in displeasure. "River," he said flatly, spinning his cards into the muck.
