Seiver Evens Up With Sands

After Scott Seiver had raised from the button with {K-Spades}{10-Diamonds} and David Sands defended from the big blind with {A-Spades}{7-Clubs}, the two took a flop of {3-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{4-Clubs}, which they both checked. They did the same on the {J-Diamonds} turn, and then Sands then check-folded to a bet of 350,000 on the {10-Hearts} river (but not before tanking for two minutes).

With that, Seiver and Sands are essentially even in chips.

Nice Pot For Seiver

Scott Seiver defended from the small blind with {A-Diamonds}{J-Spades} after David "Doc" Sands had opened for 200,000 with {Q-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} from the under-the-gun position. Both players checked the {J-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{7-Spades} flop, and then Sands called a bet of 300,000 on the {6-Hearts} turn.

When the {9-Clubs} peeled off on the river, Seiver bet a healthy 600,000 and Sands considered it for about two minutes before releasing his hand.

Katz Finds Another Double

Scott Seiver opened for 200,000 under the gun with {A-Spades}{3-Diamonds} only to have Cary Katz shove all in from the button for 680,000 with ace-queen. The blinds both folded and Seiver asked, "How much?"

"You've got to call," Katz replied.

"You'd be surprised," Seiver said with a smile.

"I've got a pair," Katz fibbed. "A pretty good pair. If you've got an ace, you've got to call." Seiver did just that, and discovered he was dominated. The {Q-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}{2-Spades} flop gave Katz two pair, while the {8-Spades} turn left Seiver drawing dead. The meaningless {J-Diamonds} was put out on the river, and Katz received a much-needed double.

Sands Loses The Minimum

David "Doc" Sands opened for 200,000 from the button with {Q-Diamonds}{10-Spades} and Scott Seiver defended from the big blind with {5-Spades}{3-Spades}. The {3-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{5-Hearts} flop looked like it'd inspired action as it gave Seiver two pair and Sands top pair, but both players ended up checking.

They did the same on the {K-Spades} turn, and then Seiver finally bet 300,000 on the {2-Clubs} river. Sands snap-called and discovered he was beat.

"I feel good about that one," Sands said with a smile after the hand in reference to losing so few chips.

"I would too," Seiver replied.
