Erik Seidel is eliminated in 6th place

Stud Hi-Low

Erik Seidel began the day as chip leader, but his quest for his ninth World Series of Poker gold bracelet just came to an end in sixth place.

It happened when Thomas "Thunder" Keller completed with the {A-Hearts} and Seidel raised to 50,000 with the {7-Hearts}. Keller three-bet to 75,000, Seidel called, and it was off to fourth street. Keller bet, Seidel called, and then Keller bet 50,000 on fifth. Seidel only had 28,000 back, and he seemed extremely hesitant to put it in. That said, he still did.

Seidel: {7-Diamonds}{6-Spades} / {7-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{5-Spades} / {3-Spades}
Keller: {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts} / {a-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{10-Spades}{9-Diamonds} / {9-Spades}

It was a bad spot for Seidel as his sevens were dominated by the aces and tens of Keller. Seidel had running straight and low options, but the {5-Spades} on sixth left him looking for either a five or seven on seventh street. That didn't happen though and he'll have to settled for sixth place and $41,230.
