But, one woman has proven that it doesn't take a very extraordinary skill to be able to make that leap from that daily humdrum world into a higher, more thrilling landscape - that if you just push yourself more and with a little luck on your side, you can flourish and make it bit doing something you don't know anything about before.

EPT Grand Final Super High Roller

Tags: ept grand final super high roller, erik seidel, jason mercier, phil ivey, sam trickett, viktor blom
Posted on Tuesday, May 14, 2013 by "T".

While most poker players think €100,000 is an awful lot of money, there are some who have the bankroll to use it for a single tournament. On Monday, the 2013 EPT Monaco Super High Roller (€100k buy-in) kicked off and saw, believe it or not, 48 entries. Phil Ivey was in for two bullets, but still he wasn't among the 29 players who survived the day.

Jason Mercier had better "luck" than Mr. Ivey. He bagged up 1,183,000 chips and has about 1 million more than his closest opponent - Sorel Mizzi. Here are few other big names who made it through Day 1: Viktor Blom, Sam Trickett, Erik Seidel, Faraz Jaka and Scott Seiver.

There's €4,900,000 in the prize pool at the moment, but most probably it will pass the 5 million mark today as registration close at noon. It will be interesting to see if Phil Ivey makes another attempt!

Posted on Monday, March 07, 2011 by "T".

Last night the American poker pro Erik Seidel won the NBC National Heads-up Poker Championship and received a first place prize of $750,000! Thanks to the huge win, Erik Seidel also overtook the lead from Daniel Negreanu on the All Time Money List.

2011 has been a fantastic year for Erik Seidel so far. He has won more in these 2,5 months than he has won in a whole year before. Let's now hope that Daniel Negreanu and Phil Ivey haven't given up for the fight for the top spot on the All Time Money List!

Erik Seidel overtakes Ivey on Poker's All Time Money List

Posted on Wednesday, March 02, 2011 by "T".

2011 has started in the best possible way for the American poker pro Erik Seidel. Already has he made it to the final table in not less than 6 major poker tournaments and won some serious cash! However, the win at the WPT LA Poker Classics High Roller event, which was played a few days ago, must have been very special to him as he overtook Phil Ivey on Poker's All Time Money List.

Erik Seidel has now won $13,95 millions (50k more than Phil Ivey) and is now "only" $160,000 behind the leader, Daniel Negreanu. It will be interesting to see how this list will look at the end of the year. The top players in the poker world play so many tournaments, with large buy-ins, that it might change just in a week or two. Yes, when 2011 kicked off, Phil Ivey was in the lead. Now, only 2 months later, both Negreanu and Seidel have passed him.

Everyone has been talking about the the super high roller event with a massive buy-in of $250,000 at this year's Aussie Millions.

Not less than 20 players signed up for the tournament and created a prize pool of stunning $5 million dollars. The field included poker gods such as Phil Ivey, Tom Dwan, John Juanda, Daniel "jungleman12" Cates and Annette Obrestad.

2010 WSOP - Tournament of Champions: Erik Seidel in the lead

Tags: 2010 wsop, erik seidel, johnny chan, mike matusow, tournament of champions
Posted on Monday, June 28, 2010 by "T".

Day 1 of Tournament of Champions is now in the books. 22 of 27 players (20 of them chosen by popular vote) have survived and made it to the second starting day. In the top of the field is Erik Seidel (72,075) closely followed by Johnny Chan (71,325) and Mike "The Mouth" Matusow (70,575). I must say that it was a quite entertaining first day of the tournament.

Many great plays, bluffs and lay downs is what we got to see in the first day of the tournament. But maybe this is what to expect when the poker world's elite are playing cards? I'm sure that day 2 of the tournament will be as interesting as the first one, and I hope that "The Mouth" will make it far in the tournament! Not because he's the best poker player, but because he's a great entertainer at the poker table! :)

Annie Duke takes home NBC:s National Heads-Up Championship!

Posted on Monday, March 08, 2010 by "T".

The 64-player starting field at the NBC national Heads-up championship was filled with the biggest names in the poker world today. Even for someone who hasn't followed poker for all that long - most of the players who took part in this tournament must be familiar. Anyhow, even though the starting field was dominated by men, it came to be a women who took down the tournament. Annie Duke played focused, concentrated and showed no fair against any player she was up against from the very first hand she played. However, she had a really, really hard road to walk since she was up against some of the world's best HU poker players.    

Anyhow, in the final, Annie Duke was up against the poker legend Erik Seidel who has won not less than 8 WSOP Bracelets. Just like Annie Duke, Erik had played great poker from the very first hand in the tournament. However, Erik had also crushed some of his opponents on the way to the final table (for example: Peter Eastgate - 2008 WSOP Main
Event champ) and earned lots and lots of respect as he proved to be extremely good at playing heads-up.
