Right after the elimination of Christopher Franco, the Matt Schultz followed him to the payout desk. Schultz grinded a short stack for most the final table but got unlucky in a big spot against Daniel Bland.
Bland shoved on the button with Q♣6♣ and Schultz called with K♥J♥ in the big blind. The A♣K♣3♠ flop put a good sweat in play as Schultz paired up and Bland picked up a flush draw. The fifth club came in on the 8♣ turn and Bland locked up the hand.
Schultz is out just shy of the podium and earns $30,564. Bland is over 9,000,000 and running away with the Event 63 final table.
