Scott Seiver (Day 1b) - Eliminated
Scott Seiver (Day 1b) - Eliminated

Scott Seiver was faced with a preflop raise to 2,000. He called near the button, Lellouche called in the blinds, and the flop fell {j-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}. The action checked to the original raiser, who slid out a continuation bet of 2,700, and Seiver moved all in for around 20,000. Lellouche flat-called, the original raiser released, and the hands were opened.

Seiver: {j-Clubs}{10-Clubs}
Lellouche: {k-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}

Seiver didn't fill up on the turn ({2-Spades}) or the river ({3-Spades}), and he was eliminated.

Lellouche is now our overwhelming chip leader, and is flirting with 300,000 chips.
