Hand #108: Erik Seidel Eliminated in 6th Place ($164,640)
Level 22: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Justin Smith raises from the cutoff to 145,000, and Erik Seidel calls from the big blind. The flop comes 853, Seidel checks, Smith bets 225,000, Seidel moves all in, and Smith instacalls with 99. Seidel shows K9 for a flush draw, and he'll need a king or a spade to stay alive.
Mike Matusow stands up and says, "I didn't want to be in the position, where I have to root for my guys against my other guys."
The turn card is the 4, the river card is the 2, and Justin Smith wins the pot with his pocket nines.
Erik Seidel is eliminated in sixth place, earning $164,640. The remaining five players are guaranteed at least $203,385.
Erik Seidel has now crossed the $10 million mark in career live tournament earnings. Congratulations, Mr. Seidel!
