The turn is the J and both players check. The river is the 9 and Seidel bets 425,000. Lindgren announces raise, then slides out 1 million chips.
Seidel takes a few seconds before announcing he is all-in for around 2,570,000 chips. Lindgren calls almost immediately and Seidel shows AQ for a Broadway straight.
Lindgren lets out a sigh then shows Q-8 for the king high straight and starts counting out the chips to pay off Seidel.
With that hand, Erik Seidel has taken the chip lead.
Erik Seidel - 5,690,000 (95 BBs)
