Mike Matusow was hoping for his fourth WSOP bracelet today, but he will have to wait another day, as he was just eliminated in a cooler stud-8 hand. We caught the action on fifth street, where we saw Matusow bet out, and get called by George Danzer and Owais Ahmed. On sixth, Danzer bet, and Matusow called. Ahmed put in two bets, and Danzer didn't take long to put a third bet out there. Matusow and Ahmed called, and Dazner bet one more time on seventh street. Matusow called off the last of his 11,000, and Ahmed also tagged along.

Danzer showed {5-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} in the hole for an eight high straight and low, and Matusow showed {6-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{4-Clubs} for a seven high straight and low. However, Owais announced he had a "seventy five" low, and showed the {5-Clubs}{3-Clubs} in the hole. Matusow made his hand on seventh, but amazingly, it wasn't good enough. He bows out just short of the final table.
