Event #57: The $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop

Seidel Sent Packing With Set Over Set

Erik Seidel - Eliminated

Gabe Kaplan and Isaac Haxton checked to Erik Seidel on a flop of {5-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{j-Clubs}, and he tossed out two lavender T250,000 chips. Gabe Kaplan moved all in for around three million, Haxton folded, and Seidel snap-called.

Seidel: {2-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}
Kaplan: {5-Spades}{5-Hearts}

Both players had flopped a set, but Kaplan held the superior three of a kind.

"The good thing is there are no more fives in the deck," Kristoph Vogelsang told Seidel. "So you can't get re-sucked out on when you hit a deuce."

Seidel gave a laugh.

Both the turn and the river had no sides, but the {a-Clubs} and the {3-Hearts} were no help to Seidel, who was eliminated.

"Good luck, everyone," he offered before exiting.
