No-Limit Hold'em

From the button, James Obst shoved all in for his last 109,000. Matusow asked for a count then decided on a flat-call. Schuyler Thornton folded his big blind, leaving Matusow and Obst heads up.

Matusow: {a-Clubs}{9-Clubs}
Obst: {A-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}

The flop was a good one for Matusow when it came {7-Spades}{8-Clubs}{4-Clubs} giving him a flush draw. He also picked up outs to a chop on the {4-Spades} turn. But the river was the {9-Hearts}, giving him two pairs, and awarding him the entire pot and eliminating Obst in eighth place.

Matusow gave Obst a big hug after the hand and Obst shook hands with both Klodnicki and Thornton and wished them luck. He will take home $32,474 for his eighth-place finish.
