Play is set to resume at 2:30 PM Las Vegas time, after they take an extended break after losing 7 players from the start of play today.
Matusow was the second elimination of the day, shortly preceded by Allen Cunningham. But after Matusow, we lost several notable players in short order including Scotty Nguyen, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, Antonio Esfandiari, Chris "Jesus" Ferguson and last but not least, Phil Hellmuth.
So we are at the money bubble as play resumes and are in for an interesting afternoon and evening as the game's greatest collide in an effort to become the 2010 WSOP Tournament of Champions Champion.
Happy July 4, enjoy the fireworks.
