Seidel Busts Esfandiari and Gruissem
Level 13 : 6,000-12,000, 1,000 ante
A very short-stacked Philipp Gruissem raised to 50,000 in the hijack, leaving about 50,000 behind. Erik Seidel three-bet to 100,000 in the cutoff, Antonio Esfandiari three-bet to 230,000 out of the big blind, and Gruissem immediately called all in. Seidel moved all in for effectively 370,000, and Esfandiari called.
The flop fell , giving Esfandiari a backdoor flush draw to go with his one overcard, but the on the turn left him drawing to the three aces in the deck. Gruissem needed one of the two remaining fours, and neither player was fortunate enough to bink as the completed the board.
Seidel is up to 860,000 chips, while Esfandiari and Gruissem are both eliminated.
