Sands Rivers Two Pair; Doesn't Get Paid

After David "Doc" Sands had opened for 320,000 from the small blind with {A-Spades}{7-Diamonds}, Scott Seiver defended from the big with {K-Clubs}{2-Hearts} and then check-called a bet of 340,000 on the {5-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{A-Diamonds} flop. Both players proceeded to check the {7-Clubs} turn, and then Seiver checked for a third time on the {7-Clubs} river.

Sands took his time before sliding out a big bet of 920,000, and Seiver eyed him up for about ten seconds before sliding his hand to the muck.

One for Seiver

Scott Seiver opened to 320,000 on the button with {10-Spades}{7-Hearts}, David Sands three-bet to 820,000 with unknown holdings, and Seiver folded.

Sands limped in with a {3-Spades}, Seiver checked with {j-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}, and the flop was {9-Clubs}{6-Spades}{8-Hearts}. Seiver check-called a 380,000-chip bet from Sands, and the turn was the {a-Diamonds}. Both players checked.

The river was the {j-Diamonds}, Seiver led out for 250,000, and Sands folded.

Seiver Takes A Little From Sands

David "Doc" Sands opened for 320,000 from the small blind with {K-Spades}{7-Hearts} and Scott Seiver defended from the big with {J-Spades}{10-Clubs}. The {A-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{Q-Spades} flop gave Seiver a pair of jacks and Sands a gut-shot straight draw, but both opted to check.

The action repeated itself on the {2-Hearts} turn, and then Seiver decided to bet 200,000 on the {2-Diamonds} river. Sands gave it some consideration, tossed in a call, and then watched the pot pushed to his opponent.

Running Jacks for Sands

Scott Seiver opened to 320,000 on the button, David Sands called, and the flop fell {3-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}. Both players checked. The turn was {j-Diamonds}, Sands led out for 444,000, and Seiver called.

The {j-Clubs} completed the board, and Sands led again - this time for 970,000. Seiver called, and Sands showed {j-Spades}{8-Diamonds}.

Seiver went to muck, but before he could, Robbie Thompson asked him to show his cards to the camera one more time.

"I showed them three times," Seiver shot at him. "My God, this is getting ridiculous."

His hand: {q-Spades}{7-Spades}.

Both players are a bit testy right now, whether it be because of the cameras or the non deal.

Sands is "Gonna F***in' Play 'Em"

Prior to counting their stacks, Scott Seiver offered to do a chip chop plus five percent. He told David Sands that believes he has an edge heads up, to which Sands said, "Maybe if we were 800 big blinds deep."

"Well yeah," Seiver answered. "I would have a huge then."

Seiver believes that he has a ten-percent edge, and his five-percent offer is half of what he expects.

Sands didn't think the deal was realistic, and went to talk with Tom Marchese.

"I'm just gonna to f***in' play 'em," Sands said.

The two have agreed to disagree, and will continue without making a deal.

There was then a break so that the television crew could re-adjust, prompting Sands to blurt, "They know we're playing a tournament and not just making a TV show, right?"

Nick Schulman Eliminated in 3rd Place ($744,140)

Nick Schulman - 3rd
Nick Schulman - 3rd

Nick Schulman began the day second in chips, but he has to settle for third place as he was just eliminated by David "Doc" Sands.

It happened when Schulman open-shipped the button for 2.435 million with {K-Spades}{6-Spades}, Scott Seiver folded {K-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} from the small blind, and Sands snap-called from the big blind with {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}.

Schulman was up out of his seat just as soon as he discovered the bad news. What he didn't know was that it was even worse than he thought as Seiver had folded a king. The {10-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{A-Clubs} flop was about as bad as it could come as Sands flopped a set, but the {J-Clubs} turn gave Schulman some hope as he could win with a non-club queen and chop with any club. Unfortunately for him, the {3-Hearts} blanked on the river and it'd be the last card he would see in the 2013 PCA $100,000 Super High Roller.

Not a bad showing for the man who took fourth in 2011 as he's had two PCA $100K Super High Roller final tables in three years.
