Event #7: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em Championship

Seidel Chipping Up

Erik Seidel

Erik Seidel, who has had quite the 2011 so far this year, raised to 4,000 after action folded to him in the cutoff. Tony Cousineau, a name you might recognize as the man with the most WSOP cashes without ever having won a bracelet, defended from the small blind and it was heads up to a {10-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} flop.

Cousineau the check-called a bet of 5,000 as the dealer put out the {5-Clubs} on the turn. Again Cousineau checked and Seidel continued to bet, this time 10,000. It was enough to get the job done as Cousineau released his hand.
