Event #65: $10,000 Main Event

Seitz Sends Arieh to the Rail

Chad_Holloway • Level 6: 250-500, 50 ante

"Seat open Table 438," we heard a dealer yell. We made our way over to discover that Josh Arieh, who finished third in the 2004 WSOP Main Event and runner-up in Event #35: $5,000 Eight-Handed No-Limit Hold'em earlier this summer, had just been eliminated at the hands of Minnesota's Jason Seitz.

It happened when Arieh shoved his last 5,300 holding {k-}{q-} and Seitz woke up with {a-}{a-}. An ace on the flop sealed Arieh's fate, and he made an early exit from the Day 2a field.
