It’s Day 3 of the 2004 World Series of Poker. 154 players remain and Derek Tomko, son of Dewey Tomko, is all-in ($82,000), with pocket cowboys heads-up against the A-7 suited Mike Matusow, a little nervous, but overall, pretty happy with the match-up.

 

Out flops J diamond.gif -7 spade.gif-Q heart.gif, giving Tomko an almost 76% chance of doubling up. He’s feeling a little better now - no Ace, no flush draw, but Matusow does catch a piece of the flop with a 7.

 

The turn shows a 6club.gif, which leaves Matusow looking at 5 outs and an 11% chance of winning the hand. Tomko is starting to get a little excited about doubling up and getting back in this thing!

 

“Winning this $5 million, ain’t gonna be easy,” quips Matusow.

 

No kidding, but this should be in the bag for Tomko now, or at least 9 out of 10 times you play it. But wait…

 

The river is 7 diamond.gif. Matusow exclaims, “I’m on fire…YES!” and breaks into a sort of victory dance. A dejected Tomko leaves the table, finishing 154th.
