Well, that escalated quickly.
Scott Seiver open-shoved again - this time for around 800,000 in the cutoff - and Andrew Phaedonos called all in for less from the small blind.
As we highlighted earlier, Phaedonos is the only Aussie at the final table, so his rail was up on their feet before the cards were on their backs. The flop gave Seiver backdoor straight and flush draws to go along with his two over cards, and both draws remained live when the turn was the .
“Too many outs!” someone yelled from the rail.
Phaedonos was amongst his brethren, pacing in between streets, and they all fell silent as the dealer rapped the table for a final time.
The on the river was a brick, and Phaedonos’ rail exploded. The Aussie doubled through, while Seiver is back on the short stack.

Jake Balsiger opened for 100,000 and was met by an all-in three-bet to roughly 400,000 by a short-stacked Scott Seiver. Action folded back around to Balsiger and he made the call.
The crowd was on their feet to watch the race, and many of them seemed disappointed when the flop paired Seiver and made him a huge favorite to double. Neither the turn nor river changed a thing, and Seiver extended his tournament life.

With two hands full of chocolate T25,000 chips, Mizzi pushed forward a raise to 1.55 million. Barer sat back in his chair, breathing deeply, then started to fidget a bit. He moved his mouth back and forth while he thought about the decision, then finally flicked his cards into the muck, conceding the pot.
