Posted 2011-01-27 GMT+11

From the button, Erik Seidel made it 100,000. Sam Trickett folded and we were off to the next hand in which Trickett raised to 125,000. Seidel called and the flop came down {9-Clubs}{6-Spades}{k-Spades}. Both players checked and the turn brought the {4-Hearts}. It was check, check again an the {10-Diamonds} fell on the river. "Ace," said Trickett. "I didn't do anything," Seidel said. He then bet 100,000. Trickett laughed and folded.

"I was gonna bet 100,000 no matter what," Seidel said trying to comfort Trickett. "I was folding anyway," Trickett said.

On the next hand, Erik Seidel had the button and limped. Trickett then raised to 175,000. Seidel made the call and the dealer burned and turned a flop of {3-Spades}{5-Hearts}{9-Hearts}. Trickett checked to Seidel, who fired out 150,000. Trickett moved all in and Seidel quickly called.

Trickett tabled {a-Spades}{q-Hearts}, while Seidel showed {j-Hearts}{9-Clubs} for top pair. The turn, {k-Spades} brought no help to Trickett, nor did the {10-Diamonds}, and Sam Trickett was eliminated in 2nd place from the biggest buy-in tournament ever, taking home AUD$1.4 million.
