Mike Matusow Eliminated in 20th Place ($20,129)

Chad_Holloway
Mike Matusow - 20th place

Action folded to Robert Mizrachi in the cutoff and he raised to 29,000. Mike Matusow was next to act on the button and potted. The blinds cleared out of the way and Mizrachi moved all in. Matusow called all in for a total of 200,000 or so and the cards were turned up.

Matusow: {A-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}
Mizrachi: {K-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}

Matusow desperately needed an ace, but found none on the {10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{10-Spades} flop. However, the {A-Hearts} spiked on the turn and left "The Mouth" jumping up and down shouting, "Yes! Yes! Yes!" As it turned out, Matusow's celebration was a little premature as the {K-Spades} rolled off on the river.

"Nooooo," Matusow bemoaned in good humor. He knew he had gotten lucky on the turn and didn't seem to mind the sweet justice of the river. Matusow was eliminated in 19th place.
