Event #7: €10,400 Main Event Championship

The Statue

Erik Seidel - the 2011 world series of musical statues winner

Everyone knows that Erik Seidel is one of the greatest poker players in the world, but he would also smash anyone at musical statues!

There was a raise to 4,200 in early position and Amir Lehavot cold-called in mid-position. Liv Boeree folded her hand in the cut-off before Erik Seidel three-bet to 17,500 on the button and turned into a statue. The original raiser folded and then Lehavot went into the tank. He didn't look at Seidel once, but if he did it wouldn't have mattered anyway. Seidel had all the kids in the world running scared because he just did NOT flinch one inch. Eventually Lehavot moved all-in for 129,000 and still Seidel did not move. Eventually Seidel came back to planet earth and folded his hand and Lehavot raked in the pot.
