Eric Seidel Wins His Ninth WSOP Bracelet and $977.842 19 Aug

Erik Seidel is a living poker legend. The 61-year-old Poker Hall of Fame member has played at the highest stakes available for decades now, accumulating $38,915,859 in tournament earnings and recording 29 tournament titles along the way. The most recent of those came when Seidel topped a field of 624 entries to win the 2021 World Series of Poker Online $10,000 buy-in ‘Super MILLION$’ no-limit hold’em high roller event on GGNetwork (BetkingsGGpokerNatural82bet4win). Seidel took home $977,842 and his ninth WSOP gold bracelet for the win.

Seidel is now tied with Johnny Moss for the third-highest bracelet count in WSOP history. The pair sits just one bracelet win behind the epic trio of ten-time bracelet winners Doyle Brunson, Phil Ivey, and Johnny Chan. Phil Hellmuth remains the runaway leader with 15 bracelets won in his career.

Seidel’s most recent win at the series, prior to this victory, was in the 2007 WSOP $5,000 deuce-to-seven lowball championship event. Seidel now has more than $6.7 million in total WSOP earnings, including the $280,000 he earned as the runner-up in the 1988 main event.
