Event #55: The $50,000 Poker Players' Championship

Matusow & Negreanu Ousted

Mike Matusow: {a-}{2-} / {2-}{k-}{k-}{9-} {x-}
Mike Gorodinsky: {4-}{7-} / {5-}{a-}{3-}{3-} / {8-}

A short-stacked Mike Matusow, who won his fourth bracelet earlier this series, completed all in for 3,300 only to have Mike Gorodinsky, who also won a bracelet this year, raise to 8,300. That drove out the rest of the players and the cards were turned up.

"I'm drawing completely dead," Matusow said aloud after fifth street was put out. Indeed he was. Sixth and seventh were run out for good measure as Matusow said goodbye and exited the tournament area.

Meanwhile, we also noticed that Daniel Negreanu is no longer with us, though his elimination came back in Level 9.
