Brian Hastings Eliminated in 2nd Place ($286,570)
Nick Schulman raised to 400,000 from the button, and Brian Hastings three-bet to 1.2 million. Schulman four-bet to put Hastings at risk for his last 2.87 million, and Hastings called.
"Ace-ten hangin' in there for now," Hastings announced after the flop gave Hastings the nut low draw, while Schulman's ace-ten high was still in the lead.
"Hang in there, baby!" Schulman said.
The turn was a blank, and Schulman grinned and said, "Hang in there, hunny!' Hastings had a multitude of outs to scoop (any deuce, three or six), and any other low card would provide Hastings a chop.
The river indeed hung in there for Schulman, and his pair of eights, ace-jack-ten high would prove to be the final hand of the tournament, and the two shared a handshake before Schulman went to celebrate with his rail.
Stay tuned for a full recap of the day's action shortly.
