Erik Seidel Eliminated in Four-Way Clash

Erik Seidel

While all remaining tables were already on their 45-minute break, a long hand played out on one of the tables near the rail, drawing a sizable crowd as eight-time bracelet winner Erik Seidel was involved in the action.

It was Jose Preciado who opened up with a raise to 50,000. Erik Seidel called all in for his final 27,000, Dave Alfa called, and Ken Saito called as well. All players quickly tapped the table on the {a-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{4-Spades} flop.

Saito, having just 48,000 behind, shoved all in when the turn came the {8-Diamonds}. Preciado called, while Alfa pitched his cards in the muck. With two players at risk and no more action, the three hands were on their backs.

Erik Seidel: {5-Hearts}{3-Hearts}
Ken Saito: {7-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}
Jose Preciado: {j-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}

Saito was ahead with two pair sevens and eights while Seidel needed a non-diamond deuce to save his tournament life. The river, however, brought the {10-Hearts} to pair Preciado's ten for a bigger two pair and give him the double-knockout.
