Philipp Gruissem Eliminated in 5th Place ($400,700)

Philipp Gruissem - 5th
Philipp Gruissem - 5th

The blinds and antes have put the pressure on the short stacks, and it didn't take long for one of them to commit. That man was Germany's Philipp Gruissem, and unfortunately for him, he wouldn't survive the red-hot Scott Seiver.

It happened when action folded to Seiver in the small blind and he simply moved all in. "Freeroll," he told Gruissem, who was smiling in the big blind. The German looked down at his first card and chuckled a bit. "Is it a good one?" Seiver asked.

"Yeah, it's enough," Gruissem said before peeking at the other card and calling off for 1,085,000. Gruissem then tabled {A-Spades}{8-Clubs}, which was a 55% favorite to beat Seiver's {K-Spades}{Q-Spades}.

The German seemed hopeful, but not after the flop fell {5-Spades}{5-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}, giving Seiver the lead with a pair of queens. Neither the {9-Hearts} turn nor {4-Diamonds} river allowed Gruissem to retake the lead, and he exited in fifth place for $400,700.
