Badeucey

Jake Schwartz pushed the last of his chips in the middle against Phil Hellmuth and was called.

After all was said and done, it was the {10-Spades}{7-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}/{3-Clubs} for a ten-seven low and a ten-seven-four-deuce Badugi that bested the {j-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{6-Clubs}/{10-Diamonds} of Schwartz, and the latter was eliminated in 3rd place and took home $107,861 in cash.

After losing heads-up to Hellmuth in the 2-7 NL Single Draw a few days ago, Schwartz was once again denied by "The Poker Brat" with the bracelet in sight.
