Mattern Flying High with Rockets

Arnaud Mattern is up to nearly 100,000 after picking up a nice pot with two aces, eventually making a full house.

There was a raise, a reraise from Nam Le on the button and then a cold four-bet to 3,900 from the small blind before action fell on Mattern in the big blind. He five-bet to 7,250. Action folded back around to the small blind and he called, leaving himself with right around 16,000 to work with heading into the flop out of position against the French Team PokerStars Pro.

The flop came down {A-Hearts}{8-Spades}{5-Diamonds} and both players checked to see the {9-Clubs} land on the turn. The small blind checked and Mattern bet extra small with a wager of 2,600. His opponent made the call.

The river completed the board, and paired it, with the {9-Spades}. The small blind checked and Mattern bet 2,950. His opponent called and watched Mattern roll over the {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds} for aces full of nines. The small blind mucked and Mattern raked in the pot.
