Erik Seidel

Erik Seidel raised to 160,000 from under the gun with {a-Diamonds}{j-Spades} and Mikita Badziakouski defended his big blind with {q-Diamonds}{8-Spades}.

Seidel hit top pair on the {5-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds} flop and both players checked. The turn came the {10-Spades}, giving Badziakouski a straight draw, and he led out for 325,000.

Seidel called as the {6-Diamonds} fell on the river. Badziakouski fired out another 750,000 and Seidel used two time banks before sticking in a call and taking the pot.

With that pot, Seidel has overtaken Badziakouski for the chip lead.
