It took two hands to see Matt Waxman eliminated from this final table. The first was a Razz hand and it left him crippled and the very next hand was Stud and that sent him home.

The Razz hand began when John Monnette brought it in with a {j-}. Paul Sokoloff then called with a {7-} and Waxman completed with a {6-}. Sokoloff called and drew and {a-}, while Waxman drew a {j-}. Sokoloff bet and Waxman called as Sokoloff drew a {7-} and Waxman a {k-}. When Sokoloff bet here, Waxman said, "I can not beat you in a pot, no matter what," and folded his cards.

That left him with less than a big bet and on the next hand, when the rotation was changed to Stud, Waxman committed the last of his chips during the first round of betting with an {a-Clubs} showing against Abe Mosseri and John Monnette. Mosseri and Monnette battled it out until fifth street when Mosseri folded, and then the cards were turned face-up.

Monnette's {9-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} (in no particular order), was good for two-pair and enough to send Waxman's {a-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} into the muck.

For that effort, Waxman goes home with $58,093 and we are now six-handed.
