Sault Ste. Marie’s Brad Jacobs will be a part of the playoff round at the 2013 Men’s World Curling Championships in Victoria, BC.

Despite a pair of losses on Thursday, Jacobs advances to the 3vs.4 Page playoff against Denamark’s Rasmus Stjrnke, scheduled for Saturday.

The Jacobs rink - with third Ryan Fry, second E.J. Harnden and lead Ryan Harnden - dropped to 7-3 after opening the day with a 5-3 loss to Denmark, leaving the Canadian entry in second heading into the final draw of the round robin.

Jacobs entered Thursday nights draw against Sweden's Niklas Edin needing a win to clinch a spot in the 1vs2 page playoff but instead dropped an 11-7 decision. With the win, the Edin rink moved into second place, ahead of the Canadians, where they will now face Scotland’s David Murdoch in the 1vs2 page playoff on Friday.

A Canadian win over Sweden would have forced a tiebreaker scenario that would have found five teams at 6-5.
