Erik Seidel hopes of the amazing comeback have been dashed by Patrick Cronin. Seidel was reduced to just a single 100 chip after losing a massive pot to Mike McDonald. In the next hand Seidel folded that one chip deciding to wait for a better spot. That better spot appeared when he found to quintuplet up through Jon Aguiar and Patrick Cronin. That gave him 500 chips and they went into the pot in the next hand. Both blinds called (including Cronin in the BB) and we were three-way to the flop.
A bet on the flop by Cronin removed the small blind from the equation and the cards were turned on their backs.
Cronin finds a set and two cards later ( & ) Seidel was out.
