Erik Seidel is poker’s new top dog
Erik Seidel is an 8-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner, owner of a World Poker Tour championship, and a Poker Hall of Famer, but in 2011 Seidel is angling to move from the poker elite into the realm of poker legend.
Seidel has absolutely owned the tournament scene in early 2011, having won three tournaments and finished in the Top 5 of four others. Here is a look at Seidel’s tournament results in 2011 according to thehendonmob.com:
· 3rd place in the $5k 6-max NLHE tournament at the PokerStars PCA — $46,560
· 4th place in the $25k NLHE High-Roller tournament at the PokerStars PCA — $295,960
· 3rd place in the $100k Poker Challenge at the Aussie Millions — $618,139
· 1st place in the $250k Super-High-roller tournament at the Aussie Millions — $2,472,555
· 5th place in the $5,100 Heads-Up Championship at the LA Poker Classic — $14,500
· 1st place in the $25k High-Roller tournament at the LA Poker Classic — $144,570
· 1st place in the NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship — $750,000
With over $4.3 million in tournament winnings in 2011, Seidel has leapfrogged players like Jamie Gold, Phil Ivey, and Daniel Negreanu and finds himself sitting as poker’s all-time tournament money leaders –although there are now about two dozen different lists and variations, but for the purposes of this column I will stick with the all-time money-list at www.thehendonmob.com, using the all inclusive model.
Erik Seidel; welcome to the Poker Legend’s club!
