The King is on his laptop reporting the news from the World Series of Poker (WSOP)Mike "The Mouth" Matusow won the fourth World Series of Poker bracelet of his career last evening after taking down the $5,000 Seven Card Stud Hi/Low Split 8 or Better event. In addition to his fourth WSOP bracelet, Matusow also walked away with the first place prize of $266,503.

The path to his fourth World Series of Poker bracelet wasn't an easy one, as Matusow needed to navigate through a 210 entrant field that included many of the top players in the world. The final table was no different, as Matusow needed to get past the likes of Yuval Bronshtein, David Baker and Mike Leah in order to take down the tournament.

Here is how the final table of the event ended up finishing out:

1. Mike Matusow, $266,503
2. Matthew Ashton, $164,700
3. Mike Leah, $108,412
4. David "Bakes" Baker, $79,073
5. Yuval Bronshtein, $58,835
6. Tony Cousineau, $44,543
7. Gavin Smith, $34,268
8. Vladimir Shchemelev, $26,757


Matusow joined some pretty elite company last night after he took down the fourth World Series of Poker bracelet of his career. Let's look at the other names who have also managed the feat:

Mickey Appleman
Bobby Baldwin
Bill Boyd
David Chiu
Artie Cobb
Mike Hart
Lakewood Louie
Tom McEvoy
Walter "Puggy" Pearson
Thomas "Amarillo Slim" Preston

Matusow has definitely been on an upswing as of late. In addition to yesterday's victory, Matusow also took down the NBC Heads-Up Championship in January for $750,000.

Mike Matusow now has $8,937,932 in total lifetime tournament earnings.
