Erik Seidel wins the Aussie Millions $250k Super High Roller Event ($2.5M)

Posted on 27 January 2011 by "T".

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. First it was meant to be a heads-up event, then an 8-game mixed event, and finally the tournament crew decided that it was going to be a single table no-limit hold'em tournament. 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.

After many hours of play, it ended up being Erik Seidel and Sam Trickett who played heads-up poker. Trickett had a big lead at first, but after 45 minutes of play Seidel was suddenly in the lead. Trickett had lost his focus at this point and a few hands later he decided to try his luck by moving all in and double up his stack. Seidel called with top-pair and Trickett didn't get any help by the turn and river card. Erik Seidel took home the first place prize of $2,500,000.

Happy for him. He is a superb poker player and a very decent person.The start of the year is very good for him. It is already his second big cash in January.

Wow. $250k buy in. THAT is a tourney. A bit sad, that it was only a normal Hold'em tourney and not a one with a mix of games.

Yea .... 250k buy-in is kinda sick for sure.
And it's more SNG then tournament Tongue. But winning 10x buy-in it's not bad option for sure when it goes to high-roller.
