Erik Seidel Takes a Deuce (and 8th Bracelet)
Erik Seidel is kind of like the Paul Molitor of poker. He just plugs along, plugs along, always a star but not necessarily a superstar, and next thing you know you look up and he’s got 3,000 hits and a sure-fire spot in the Hall of Fame. Or in this case, a ridiculously under-appreciated 8 WSOP bracelets.
Seidel captured bracelet #8 in one of our favorite tourneys, the $5,000 Duece-Seven Lowball w/ rebuys event. Not that we particularly like playing Deuce-Seven, but more so because "deuce" happens to be a synonym for "poo."
For the win, Seidel banks $538,835. He defeated reigning BLUFF Player of the Year, Lorenzo Lamas, heads-up for the title. Shawn Sheikhan finished third.
