Chris Trapani Eliminated in 12th Place ($37,000)
Level 21: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante
After a flop of AQ8, Chris Trapani moves all in from the button for 436,000, and Shooting Star Mike Matusow calls from the big blind with AK for top pair, top kicker. But Trapani turns over A8 for the lead with two pair.
The turn card pairs the board with the Q, and Matusow claps his hands and stands up as he takes the lead -- Trapani's two pair is counterfeited.
The river card is the 4, and Mike Matusow wins the pot with two pair, aces and queens, with a king kicker.
Chris Trapani, son of the late Bay 101 owner Marko Trapani, ends his Cinderella run in the event his father created back in the 1990s. Trapani receives a nice ovation from the crowd for his 12th-place finish.
Mike Matusow - 1,100,000 (91 BBs)
Chris Trapani - Out in 12th Place ($37,000
