Event 16: Matrone Wants To Be Alone At End

$260 + $40 Deep Stack NL

Michael Matrone Doubles Up

Michael Matrone (Morganville, NJ) doubles up right before three tables are condensed to two.

He just squeaked by. If not for a miracle river he would have been a gonner.

Matrone was holding 8-9 of clubs up against 10-J of clubs.

Matrone put his tournament life at stake on a club heavy flop and had to spike an eight on the river to live-on.

Michael is afraid of Roland Israelashvili to his right. "I think I can take him down, just have to be patient", said Matrone.

Blinds are 25,000 / 50,000 with 4000 antes.
