The Mouth was able to parlay his initial 87,000 into more than 350k on Day 2 of the $40k event, doubling up with aces before busting British pro Chris Moorman in a cooler hand that saw Moorman1's flopped pair of aces fall to the Mouth's turned set of tens.
Eventually, however, the Full Tilt Pro would succumb, falling just before the dinner break in a blind versus blind confrontation with Keith Lehr, sevens against A-10 with Lehr getting there courtesy an ace on the river.
Matusow walked it off and turned his attention to the lower buy-in event. But the prognosis from the O8 tables was not much brighter as Matusow, having been blinded off throughout the day, found himself facing down life as a short stack yet again.
The Mouth would make a battle of it, but would find himself eliminated for the second time today when he got all-in against two opponents and found his pair of nines inadequate competition for one rival's two pair.
Also eliminated in the O8 tourney is Dr. Jerry Buss, who fouled out just in time to watch his Los Angeles Lakers spank the Denver Nuggets and earn a berth in the NBA finals.
Somehow we think he probably doesn't care about busting out here in Vegas.
