Event #65: $10,000 Main Event

Final Remaining Champion Seed Falls

• Taso 15: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante
Huck Seed was the last remaining Main Event champ.

Huck Seed opened to 8,500 in the cutoff, and Dan Smith three-bet to 21,000 on the button. The big blind went into the tank, and Smith called for time. As soon as the tournament director arrived, the big blind mucked.

"Stay close," Smith said. "He's been taking a long time every hand."

Seed four-bet to 80,000, leaving himself about the same amount behind. Smith said he was all in, and Seed called.

Smith: {k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}
Seed: {q-Clubs}{j-Clubs}

"All in and a call," the dealer announced.

"Deal fast, before they show up," Seed joked, referring to the cameras that would come catch him all in with queen-high.

The {2-Spades}{9-Spades}{8-Diamonds} flop gave Seed some hope with a straight draw, but the {a-Hearts} and {3-Clubs} were bricks, sending the 1996 Main Event champion to the rail just short of the money. American pro Smith, meanwhile, has a massive stack to work with as the bubble approaches.
