Matt Hyman Eliminated in 2nd Place ($561,000)

Chad_Holloway • Level 28: 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante
Matt Hyman - 2nd Place

Heads-up play proved to be a back-and-forth affair, and it was only fitting that the last hand was a big sweat.

It happened when Matt Hyman raised to 310,000 with the {a-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} only to have Nick Schulman three-bet all in with what would turn out to be the {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}. Hyman called off for 2.27 million and once again he was way behind.

However, he's bounced back time and again from similar spots, and it looked like he might do it again when the {q-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} flop gave him a flush draw.

Fortunately for Schulman, this time his opponent didn't get off the hook as the {5-Spades} blanked on the turn followed by the {A-Clubs} on the river.
