West Sends Seitz Home; Winter Doubles Through Thurlow

HillKerby • Level 15: 3,000-5,000, 5,000 ante
Jason Seitz in Day 1a action

Jason Seitz went all in for 68,000 under the gun and action had folded around to Fredger West, who was in the big blind and in the tank. He was talking to Seitz and counting out a call, saying he really wasn't trying to slowroll Seitz. He then put out chips onto the felt.

"I really hope you're not ahead," said West eventually, putting out chips to call as he did so.

Jason Seitz: {j-Diamonds}{j-Spades}
Fredger West: {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}

"You're ahead," added West after seeing the news. However, he didn't stay behind for long as the board ran out {10-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{5-Spades}{2-Spades}{7-Spades} to give him a set of tens on the flop. Seitz stood up as the turn rolled off and was gone by the time the pot was shipped to West.

Moments earlier, Alex Winter got all in from the cutoff against Justin Thurlow, who was in early position.

Alex Winter: {j-}{j-}
Justin Thurlow: {a-}{10-}

The board ran out {4-}{4-}{4-}{x-}{j-} to give Winter a flopped full house that became a better one by the time the runout was finished, scoring him the double to take him up to 190,000 after coming into the day as one of the shortest stacks in the room. Thurlow is also off to a hot start despite losing the pot, having chipped up already over 600,000.
