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

Dramatic Chop For Seiver and Klein

• Nivå 8: 15,000-3,000, 5,000 ante
Scott Seiver Deserves to Chop

Erik Seidel made it 70,000 to go from late position and Scott Seiver flatted from the next seat over. Bill Klein was on the button and cut out a three-bet to 230,000. Seidel called and Seiver came along for the ride as well.

The flop came down {5-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{8-Clubs} and action checked back to Klein. He bet 375,000 and Seidel got out of the way. Seiver called to see the {6-Hearts} fell on fourth street. Seiver checked for a second time and Klein followed suit.

The {4-Spades} finished off the community cards, putting a straight on the board. After about 30 seconds, Seiver announced that he was all in. Suddenly, Klein was put to the test for his tournament life of about 1.95 million. He took a deep breath and slid forward a call.

Seiver rolled over {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Spades} and Klein showed {A-Spades}{k-Diamonds}, meaning that the pot would be chopped.

"Good call, Bill," said Antonio Esfandiari. "Everybody knew he was moving in on the river 100% of the time."

"It was your classic race!" said Seiver. "Ace-king against queens. We deserve to chop!"

Seiver now has about 2.6 million and Klein has 2.62 million.

Bill Klein us 2,620,000 100,000
Scott Seiver us 2,600,000 -130,000
