Hand #170: Mike Matusow Eliminated in 3rd Place ($369,800)
Level 29: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante
Alan Sternberg raises from the button to 180,000, Mike Matusow moves all in from the big blind for 1,380,000, and Sternberg asks for a count. When he hears the amount, he calls with KQ. Matusow turns over 92, and he'll need to improve to stay alive.
The flop comes Q10642, and Alan Sternberg wins the pot with a pair of queens to eliminate Mike Matusow in third place.
Matusow is also a Shooting Star, so Sternberg receives the $5,000 cash bounty, along with an autographed "I Busted Mike Matusow" t-shirt.
Seat 1. Mike Matusow - Out in 3rd Place ($369,800)
Seat 3. Alan Sternberg - 6,205,000
Seat 5. Steven Kelly - 6,255,000
There will be an extended break for interviews and the money presentation before heads-up play begins in roughly 30 minutes.
