David "Doc" Sands, who began the final table as the chip leader, was dealt a crushing blow moments ago, and Scott Seiver recently finished the job.
It happened when Sands looked down at and moved all in from the small blind for 1.865 million. Seiver picked up and made a quick call to put his opponent at risk. Sands was in need of some help, and while the flop did not hit him directly, it gave him a flush draw to any diamond.
The turn was not was he was looking for, and neither was the river. Seiver successfully sweated both the turn and river to capture the 2013 PCA $100K Super High Roller title; meanwhile, Sands finished as runner-up and secured a $1,259,320 consolation prize.
