A Lesson In Getting There by Scott Seiver

[user217945]
Scott Seiver

A player under the gun opened to 2,700. He was called by Scott Seiver in middle position, Erik Seidel in the small blind, and one other player in the big blind.

The flop came down {8-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} and Seidel checked. The player in the small blind put out a bet of 5,600 and only Seiver called.

The turn was the {6-Spades} and the small blind led out with another bet of 12,200. Seiver called again.

The river fell the {J-Spades} and both players checked.

"Ten eight," the small blind player said not showing his hand.

Seiver just shook his head and turned up his {Q-Spades}{J-Clubs} for a rivered better two pair. That was good enough to take down the pot pushing Seiver close to 150,000 in chips.
