Erik Seidel Makes a Wheel at the Right Time
2015 World Series of Poker

Erik Seidel completes with a  , Brandon Shack-Harris calls with a  , and Mike Leah joins with a  . "Swing pot," Leah says.

Seidel: (x-x)/    /(x)
Shack-Harris: (x-x)/    /(x)
Leah: (x-x)/    /(x)

The fun happens on fourth street. Leah makes the first bet of 8,000 with the lead. Seidel calls, Shack-Harris raises to 16,000, and Leah makes it three bets for 24,000 total. Seidel calls again, and Shack-Harris calls the extra bet.

On fifth street, Leah makes the big bet of 16,000, and both opponents call.

On sixth, the action repeats with Seidel and Shack-Harris calling a Leah bet.

On seventh, Leah checks, Seidel bets, and Shack-Harris calls. Leah spends some time staring forlornly at his down cards before tucking them under and mucking.

Seidel opens up    , making a wheel on the river and scooping what is likely the largest pot of the tournament so far.

"How did we not get you out of there on fourth?" Leah asks. "We tried."

Erik Seidel - 385,000
Brandon Shack-Harris - 195,000
Mike Leah - 157,000
