Matthew Smith

Matthew Smith recently doubled only to bust on the very next hand.

First, he picked up JhTc in the small blind and got 345,000 in preflop versus the As6h of Ian O’Hara in the big. An AhKhQc flop marked Broadway for Smith and he doubled to better than 700,000.

The very next hand, Glenn Becker raised to 85,000 from the cutoff. Smith was on the button and shoved for just over 700,000. O’Hara folded the small and Chad Bradbury declined his option from the big. Becker called and Smith was at risk.

Becker: KsKc
Smith: AsTh

Runout: QcTc5h3c[34c]

It wasn’t to be for Smith. He was eliminated in 7th place earning $31,000.
