WPT Super-High-Roller: Seidel wins again!

Posted by Gerry Poltorak on May 20, 2011 Posted in WPT News | No Comments »

I can’t recall another person in the history of sports and gaming that has a career-defining year AFTER they were elected into the Hall of Fame! But this is precisely what Erik Seidel has done since being inducted into the Poker hall of Fame last November and his latest score puts him over $5.5 million in earnings in a 6-month period.

Seidel is now just a tick under $16 million in career tournament earnings according to thehendonmob.com’s all-time money list, putting him in the #1 spot. Here is a look at what Seidel has done in the first five months of 2011:

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
2nd place in the $9,600 WPT Hollywood Poker Open Main Event — $155,103
1st place in the WPT $100k Super-High-Roller tournament — $1,092,780

The player chasing Seidel for the all-time money-list spot, Daniel Negreanu, was able to somewhat keep pace thanks to his 3rd place finish for $448,320. However, Negreanu who was once in the top spot himself in early 2011 is now almost $1.5 million behind Seidel.

1st Place: Erik Seidel $1,092,780
2nd Place: Erick Lindgren $700,500
3rd Place: Daniel Negreanu $448,320
4th Place: Vivek Rajkumar $336,240
5th Place: Justin Bonomo $224,160
