Event 14: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

Adam Kagin Eliminated in 3rd Place ($120,329)

Adam Kagin - 3rd place

All of a sudden two players are heads up for the bracelet and all the glory that goes with it.

Adam Kagin left us in third spot after he and Brandon Schaefer went to war pre flop. Schaefer opened to 55,000 from the button and then moved all-in after Kagin three-bet to 200,000 from the small blind. Call.

Kagin: {8-Spades}{8-Hearts}
Schaefer: {a-Hearts}{10-Spades}

The board ran {5-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{a-Clubs}{10-Hearts} to make Schaefer two-pair by the river.

He and Jon Cohen have almost even stacks, at more than 100 big blinds each, heading into their heads up battle.
