Event 14: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

Seidel Crippled

• Taso 3: 400-800, 100 ante

Most recently over at table #451 we found the under the gun player making it 2,000 preflop. The next person in line to act made the call, and Eric Seidel who was next to act repopped to 7,300. The button was next to act and he opted to move all in for around 45,000. Everyone else decided that was to rich for their blood and folded, except Seidel who went into the tank. Seidel seemed to weigh both options pretty heavily, eventually though he went with a call.

Seidel: {A-Hearts}{k-Hearts}
Opponent: {Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs}

The dealer then exposed a {5-Clubs}{5-Spades}{5-Diamonds} flop which was no help to Seidel. A {6-Diamonds} on the turn meant that only an ace or a king could appear on the river for Seidel to claim the pot. He received no such luck as the river came out the {q-Hearts}. Seidel now sits with around 8,000 in chips and is in dire need of help if he wants to make it to day three.
