WSOP Tournament of Champions

Seidel Table Chip Daddy

Chris Ferguson raised to 800 under the gun and it folded right around to Erik Seidel in the big blind who made the call.

Seidel initially checked the {2-Spades}{4-Spades}{6-Spades} flop, but when Ferguson bet 1,200 he raised to 3,000. Ferguson called.

Seidel checked again on the {5-Clubs} turn and Ferguson now checked behind. When they got to the {q-Hearts} river Seidel bet out 4,000 and Ferguson called - only to muck when Seidel turned over {q-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} for a rivered top pair.

Seidel - now the table leader on 76,000
Ferguson - back down to 37,000

Seeing as it's Erik Seidel who is holding up the restart of the PLO8 - where 21 players remain and Seidel is the second-shortest stack - it's good to know he might get something for all the trouble.
