Seelbach Smashed on the Koral

Jonathan Seelbach

Action folded to Tom Koral in the hijack and he put in a raise to 90,000. Action folded to a short-stacked Jonathan Seelbach in the big blind and he shipped his entire stack of 835,000. Koral mare the call and Seelbach discovered he was in bad shape.

Koral: {A-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}
Seelbach: {A-Hearts}{6-Hearts}

The {4-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{6-Clubs} gave Seelbach a pair of sixes for the lead, but it also provided Koral with a flush draw. Seelbach's hope was quickly demolished when the {Q-Spades} peeled off on the turn, leaving him drawing to one of the two remaining sixes in the deck. The {5-Spades} on the river was close, but not quite what Seelbach needed.

He was eliminated from the tournament in 87th place while Koral chipped up to 3.5 million.
