Poker legend Erik Seidel has won his tenth WSOP gold bracelet after taking down Event #7: $50,000 Super High Roller at WSOP Paradise for $1,704,400.

The American is now tied for second place in the bracelet table alongside Phil Ivey, Doyle Brunson, and Johnny Chan, who all trail none other than Phil Hellmuth leading the way with 17.


Seidel has had an incredible poker career with his career total now sitting at $45,565,328 which puts him at 7th place in the all time winners list.

His first recorded cash was a runner-up score back in 1988 in the WSOP Main Event. Some start!

But it took him four more years to bag his first bracelet, with two more following in 1993 and 1994.

Then from 1998, every couple of years or so until 2007, he won five more and that was it until 2021. Victory in the online $10,000 Super Million$ High Roller banked him almost $1 million with $1.7 million coming last Friday.

But these aren’t the biggest scores of Erik Seidel’s career. He won the high-stakes Aussie Millions in 2011 for $2,472,555; $2,222,222 after taking down the $100k EPT Monte Carlo Super High Roller; and then $2,400,000 for third place in the 2016 Super High Roller Bowl.




Speaking to PokerNews in his winners interview, Seidel said:

“It really is nice to get to double digits. Any time you win a bracelet is just an incredibly special thing. To get to ten, I don’t know, it’s a beautiful feeling. It’s just so nice when things go well like this.

"You just hope that when you’re in a spot like this you run well and the cards cooperate. I’m still trying to keep up with these guys.
I’m talking to people, working hard and playing ... Part of it is just I love the game. I love to wake up and play, so hopefully I can keep that enthusiasm.”
