Malis' runout came {6-Hearts} and {5-Spades} to make sixes and fives, while Matusow's runout was {3-Spades} and {A-Spades} for just a pair of kings. Malis doubled, while Matusow was left with just 14,500.

Matusow got it in the next hand with split tens, but Jean Montury made kings up on seventh and Matusow couldn't catch up.
