Seidel Into the Chip Lead

Chad_Holloway • Level 22: 60,000-120,000, 20,000 ante

Vitaly Lunkin opened for 260,000 from the button with the {10-Hearts}{8-Spades} and Erik Seidel opted to just call with the {7-Spades}{7-Diamonds} in the big blind. The {7-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} flop gave Seidel bottom set and he chose to lead out with it for 325,000. Lunkin, who flopped middle pair, made the call.

After the dealer burned and turned the {4-Hearts}, Seidel used two hands to come out with a big bet of 950,000. Lunkin quickly folded. With that, Seidel, who was the short stack at the start of three-handed play, is now the chip leader.
