Seidel's Hand Holds Up

Webjoker • Level 13: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante
Erik Seidel

Iacopo Brandi raised under the gun and found no less than 3 callers; Andrey Bondar (cutoff), the small blind, and Erik Seidel in the big blind.

The flop came {8-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{9-Clubs} and both blinds checked to initial raiser Brandi. The Italian player checked as well and now it was Bondar doing the betting. The Russian player bet 13,500 and the small blind called. Erik Seidel check raised to 80,000 and initial raiser Brandi folded, holding his cards at one so high up, his neighbor could see he had {K-}{K-}.

Bondar now moved all in and the small blind folded. Seidel was happy to call.

Andrey Bondar: {J-Spades}{J-Diamonds}
Erik Seidel: {Q-Spades}{10-Spades}

Seidel had flopped the nuts and needed the board not to pair to knock out his opponent. The {Q-Clubs} on the turn and {5-Spades} on the river were good for Seidel and Bondar had to make his exit.
