Mike Matusow

Jimmy D'Ambrosio and Mike Matusow told PokerNews about a hand they were involved in which began with a third player opening to 5,400 and Matusow flat-calling as the player next to act. D'Ambrosio then three-bet shoved a stack of 51,000 and the action folded to Matusow.

"I would've been happy with either a call or a fold," D'Ambrosio said.
