Matt Schultz - 12th Place

Picking up with the action during the first draw, David Bell pulled two cards, Vladimir Shchemelev took one, a short-stacked and already all in Matt Schultz took two, and Kevin Iacofano also took two.

Bell checked, Shchemelev fired out a bet and both Iacofano and Bell called. On the second draw, Bell and Shchemelev pulled one, Schultz took two for a second time, and Iacofano took one. On this street, action checked around to Iacofano and he fired out a bet. Both Bell and Shchemelev called.

The third draw saw Bell stand pat, Shchemelev take one, Schultz pull two for a third time, and Iacofano take one. Action checked around and Iacofano tabled {9-}{8-}{7-}{5-}{2-} to win the side pot.

Schultz fanned {8-}{4-}{3-} and was drawing live. He slapped his first card on the felt - a {7-}.

"Come on!" someone shouted from Schultz's rail. He was drawing live and needed to beat a ninety-eight in order to stay alive. Alas, his final card was the {Q-Clubs} and he was officially eliminated from play in 12th place. Iacofano scooped all of the chips and now has about 170,000 to his name.
