Mariano stopped by the $300,000 Super High Roller Bowl to check out the action, and while he was here Sarah Herring grabbed him for a quick edition of Calling the Clock.

Erik Seidel jammed the small blind for 1.2 million and Rainer Kempe looked him up in the big blind with the {a-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}.

Seidel's tournament life was riding on the dominated {a-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}, and although he picked up outs to chop on the {9-Hearts}{9-Spades}{3-Clubs} flop and {a-Diamonds} turn, the {6-Diamonds} river did not help.

After staving it off all day, Seidel was finally eliminated in third place and Kempe will now take a close to 2:1 lead into heads up play with Fedor Holz.

Seidel with the Double Through Holz

donpeters • Level 24: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

On the button, Fedor Holz raised to 225,000. Erik Seidel pounced with an all-in shove for 430,000 from the small blind, and then Rainer Kempe folded from the big blind. Holz made the priced-in called with the {Q-Clubs}{5-Clubs}, but his hand was dominated by the {Q-Hearts}{8-Hearts} for Seidel.

Holz took the lead with a pair of fives on the {9-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} flop, but Seidel had plenty of outs with flush and straight draws, plus an eight.

The turn was the {J-Spades}, giving Seidel a few more outs, and then the river delivered the {3-Hearts} to give him a flush and the double.

With that, Seidel moved to just under 1 million in chips. Holz dropped back to 5.285 million.

Holz Gets a Kempe Fold

mnuwwarah • Level 23: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Rainer Kempe completed the blind, and Fedor Holz checked. They saw an {8-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} flop, and Kempe bet 115,000. Holz called. The turn was a {7-Hearts} and Kempe barreled again for 245,000. Holz thought awhile, using a time extension, and then slid out a tower of chips worth 790,000. Kempe folded fairly quickly.

Seidel On A Million

donpeters • Level 23: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Rainer Kempe and Fedor Holz have been trading blows, although there have been very few showdowns.

Erik Seidel has to be enjoying the battle, with thoughts of squeaking into second if these two clash in a big pot, but he's starting to get close to the ten-big-blind danger zone again.

He defended his big blind against a Kempe 160,000-chip open, then check-folded on a {k-Spades}{a-Hearts}{4-Hearts} flop moments ago, leaving him exactly 1,000,000 in chips now.
