Seidel Picks Off Higgs Bluff

• Nível 6: 250-500, 75 ante
Erik Seidel

We caught the action on the turn on a board reading {9-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{6-Clubs} in a hand between Sam Higgs and Erik Seidel. The pot is already a sizable one and it grew still further as Higgs check-raised Seidel’s 4,500 turn bet to the tune of 10,500 in total. Seidel thought it over but did make the call to bring the play to the {a-Clubs} river.

Higgs led out for 15,300 putting Seidel in a difficult spot as he only had around 20,000 or so behind. Seidel took his time before counting out the call in blue 1k chips and sliding it into the middle.

“You win.” Said Higgs, tabling {5-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} for a missed gutshot.

Seidel turned over {10-Clubs}{k-Diamonds} for two pairs and raked in the pot to climb to over 70,000 while Higgs dropped to 55,000.
