The last hand of the 3rd-place finisher has finally occurred, with Jeff Shulman the latest player to head to the rail. It started when Shulman raised it up on the button. Benjamin Scholl called in the big blind and a {q-Spades}{8-Spades}{2-Diamonds} flop was dealt. Scholl opted to check-raise here and Shulman made the call. The {k-Diamonds} turn then saw Shulman and Scholl put in enough bets to see Shulman's last chips enter the pot.

When Shulman tabled his {a-Hearts}{k-Spades} he was looking very good to double-up and survive against the {9-Spades}{8-Hearts} of Scholl. However, fate had other ideas as a {9-Clubs} on the river would send Scholl the pot and Send Shulman home with a bittersweet $92,562.
