Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

The Mouth Makes His Exit

[user145752] • Level 7: 300-600, 75 ante
Mike Matusow

Mike Matusow had been having a rough day, unable to get anything going it seemed, and in a hand that was a microcosm of his whole day, he has been eliminated. Matusow and Terrence Chan were heads up on a flop of {5-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{3-Clubs}. Chan checked to Matusow, and with about 3,500 in the middle, Matusow put out a bet of 3,000. Chan thought for just a few moments before putting out a stack that had Matusow covered. Matusow beat him into the pot with the call, and was in disbelief when he saw Chan's hand.

Chan: {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}
Matusow: {k-Diamonds}{k-Spades}

When he saw Chan's hand, Matusow could only stare up at the ceiling for a few moments before tabling his hand. He would need one of the two remaining kings in the deck to survive, and he wouldn't get it on the turn, the {3-Hearts}. Rubbing salt in the wound, the river came the {10-Hearts}, giving Chan unnecessary quads. Matusow spoke briefly with the ESPN cameras, before quickly making his final exit out of the Amazon room for this WSOP.
