Scott Seiver was under the gun and he opened to 200,000. Ilkin Garibli was next to act and he popped it up to 510,000 from the cutoff. Action folded back to Seiver and he called to see a flop.
The dealer fanned on the felt and Seiver checked. Garibli cut out a bet of 630,000 and action was back on Seiver. He looked Garibli up and down.
"You look so calm," said Seiver to Garibli. "Like you don't have a good hand."
Seiver thought for a bit longer before announcing that he was all in over the top for 2.895 million total. This sent Garibli into the tank for about a minute. Ultimately, he quietly announced a call.
"Please hold!" pleaded Seiver.
The fell on the turn, giving the hand a bit more drama as Garibli could now make a higher flush with a diamond on the river. Unfortunately for Seiver, he was four-flushed in a key spot for the second time of the night after the drilled the river. Seiver shot out of his seat in frustration while Garibli stared at the board with a stunned look.
Seiver was eliminated from play with a $398,340 payday while Garibli seized a commanding chip lead of 8.45 million.
