Andrew Rudnik Eliminated in 3rd Place

Earlier in the night, Andrew Rudnik doubled up when he hit a set of Jacks against the Pocket Aces of Justin Cohen. Well this time Cohen got revenge on Rudnik and the two Jacks that beat him.

From button, Cohen raised to 200,000 before Mark Schmid got out of the way. In the big blind, Rudnik raised to 800,000 and Cohen immediately announced he was all in. After about 30 seconds Rudnik made the call almost reluctantly. He once again held {j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} and seemed disappointed to have to race for his tournament life against he {a-Hearts}{k-Spades} of Cohen.

The flop came down {k-Clubs}{a-Spades}{10-Clubs} which gave Cohen the lead in the hand. He would have to dodge a Jack or Queen on the river to be heads up for the bracelet. The turn bricked with the {6-Hearts} as did the {4-Hearts} river.

With that pot, Cohen will take an almost 3 to 1 chip lead into heads up play while Rudnik walks off as our 3rd Place finisher.
