Erick Lindgren wins $1,000,000

Erick Lindgren - 1st Place
Erick Lindgren - 1st Place
After wearing Erik Seidel down for the better part of an hour, Erick Lindgren finally gets all of Seidel's chips in the middle pre flop. Seidel flips over {K-Hearts}{J-Hearts}, while Lindgren is in the lead, as he shows {A-Clubs}{7-Clubs}. the flop {A-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} brings some hope, but brickage on the turn {6-Diamonds} and river {5-Clubs} ends Seidel's night, and makes Erick Lindgren $1,000,000 richer. Seidel receives $550,000 for his second place finish.

Masaaki Kagawa 3rd place

After watching his chip stack dwindle for the better part of two hours, Masaaki Kagawa decided to re-raise Erik Seidel with {A-Clubs}{7-Hearts} for the last of his chips. Seidel made the call with {6-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}, and the race was on. A board of {9-Hearts}{J-Spades}{4-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} changed nothing, and Masaaki Kagawa was our third place finisher, and picked up $250,000 for his efforts.

Beer Time

As the evening wears on, Erick Lindgren has bought a round of beers for the rail. he looked at the floorman, and said "I'd like 31 beers - one for me, and 30 for the rail.' TD Brett Jones obliged, and everyone on the rail has a drink.

Masaaki Kagawa is beginning to leak away his chips. he got clipped for 200k when Erik Seidel re-raised his re-raise pre-flop, and he layed it down. Masaaki has slowly but surely bled chips, and is now the short stack.
