Seidel into Lead After Double Elimination

will_shill • Level 20: 6,000-12,000, 12,000 ante
Erik Seidel

Pete Chen moved all in for 139,000 from the button and Erik Seidel announced a min-raise from the small blind to 266,000.

Scott Margereson was in the big blind and four-bet all in for 645,000. Seidel called.

Pete Chen: {9-Spades}{9-Diamonds}
Erik Seidel: {a-Hearts}{k-Clubs}
Scott Margereson: {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}

Margereson was in the lead and stayed that way on the {2-Spades}{3-Hearts}{4-Hearts} flop which gave Seidel extra straight outs. However, he hit his {a-Spades} on the turn to take the lead, putting both players at risk.

The river was the {j-Clubs} and he chipped up to 1,850,000.

"1.85?" asked tablemate Tomas Ribeiro. "Same as first prize!"
