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.

Brian Hastings: {a-Spades}{6-Spades}{3-Hearts}{2-Hearts}
Nick Schulman: {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{4-Hearts}

"Ace-ten hangin' in there for now," Hastings announced after the {8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{8-Spades} 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 {q-Hearts} 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 {j-Hearts} 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.
