Erik Seidel Wins 9th Wsop Bracelet In Ggpoker Online Event
“They aren’t perfect, but I’ve been pretty happy with ACR overall. The tournaments are big and I play fast fold all the time since they added it to mobile.” Thus, he turned his full attention to the game, spending numerous hours at the famous Mayfair Club, which was frequented by the likes of Dan Harrington and Howard Lederer. It’s been 14 long years since Erik Seidel stepped into the winner’s circle as a WSOP bracelet winner. Seidel won his ninth WSOP bracelet — and his first online bracelet — with a come-from-behind victory on Tuesday at the 2021 World Series of Poker Online at GGPoker.
He played at the European Poker Tour and made earnings of $84,229 and $210,650 respectively. With time, Erik began to lose interest in the excitement and winnings that come with the life of a gamer. The fact that the winnings were not really forthcoming at this point started to make him weary.
In 2001, Erik cashed twice at the WSOP before he won bracelet number 5 in the $3,000 NLHE to collect $411,300. Between the beginning of 2001 and the end 2005, he would cash over 50 times including 18 times at the WSOP and eight times in WPT events. At the 2003 WSOP, Erik took home $146,100 and his 6th bracelet when he won the $1,500 PLO event. Two years later, at the 2005 WSOP, he made 4 final tables, winning his 7th bracelet and $ 611,795 in the $2,000 NLHE. A few months later, he took first in the $2,500 PLO at the Bellagio Five-Diamond World Poker Classic for $95,059.
In 2015, he triumphed at the €100k EPT Grand Final Super High Roller in Monte Carlo, pocketing another $2.2 million. He also has one World Poker Tour title to his name, which came in 2008, with a payday of $1 million. For all his achievements, Seidel was inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame in 2010. For young Seidel, these backgammon games, which were available around the clock in the NYC area, proved to be a great source of additional income. Presented with the challenge and realizing there was some nice money to be made, Erik Seidel took a very serious approach to the game, analyzing it in detail. This approach, combine with his natural intelligence, yielded great results.
Erik’s first cashes in 2009 were at the WSOP where he cashed in 5 events, making 3 final tables. After cashing in the $5,000 NLHE, he finished 7th in the $1,500 PLHE for $24,919, and cashed in the $10,000 PLO. He then took 8th for $162,381 in the $50,000 HORSE, and finished 4th in the $5,000 Ante Up For Africa Charity Event to earn $51,601.
