Martins Seilis Eliminated in 9th Place (€83,200)
In one of the first hands back from the break, Sebastian von Toperczer opened for 100,000 from the hijack only to have Martins Seilis three-bet all in for 710,000 from the cutoff. When action reached Jack Salter in the small blind, he looked down at his cards and then made a triangle with his fingers, the motion he uses to indicate that he is all in. Von Toperczer folded, and the cards were turned up.
Seilis was is great shape, and according to the PokerNews Odds Calculator he had a 66.54% chance of doubling on the hand while Salter would come from behind 27.97% of the time.
The flop made things interested as Salter picked up a flush draw. It was much more of a flip at this point with Seilis being a slight 49.39% favorite over Salter, who had a 45.76% chance of hitting. The turn made it so there was a 20.45% of a tie, but it'd be the river that would give Salter the come-from-behind win and send Seilis out the door in ninth place.
We're now down to the final table of eight players.
