Scott Seiver Eliminated in 7th Place (AU$170,000)
It's taken nearly three hours of play, but we've finally had our first elimination.
It happened when Darren Rabinowitz opened for 160,000 and was met by an all-in three-bet of just over a million by Scott Seiver from the button. Both blinds folded, Rabinowitz called, and it was off to the race.
According to the PokerNews Odds Calculator, Seiver was a slight 55.24% favorite while Rabinowitz would win 44.40% of the time. Unfortunately for Seiver, this was one of those time as the flop came down to pair Rabinowitz's ace and make him an 86.36% favorite.
The turn was a good card for Seiver as it gave him a 25% chance of hitting his flush, but it was not meant to be as the blanked on the river. Seiver was eliminated in seventh place for AU$170,000.
