Event #7: €10,400 Main Event Championship

Silver Trading at Just Less Than 2:1

Max Silver is in the proverbial catbird seat today, on the direct right of three very short stacks. As such, he can get away with doing things like opening to 125,000 in late position. That raise got through a few hands ago, but we picked up another pot as Silver made a more standard open to 35,000. Arnaud Mattern squeezed out his cards, then shoved in for 176,000 on a three-bet. Action folded back around to the raiser, and he went into the tank for a while, eventually smirking at his opponent.

"Well, I'm not getting two to one," Silver lamented.

"You're not?" Mattern asked. Indeed, Silver was getting just less than that price, and he eventually folded showing the {A-Clubs}. Mattern answered by flashing the {K-Diamonds}, and Patrik Antonius joked, "Call!" from across the table. "Overcard, right?" he grinned.

Mattern takes it down, though, earning himself just a bit of extra breathing room.
