The WPT Super High Roller was the first-ever event with a $100,000 buy-in in the U.S, and the turnout was a huge success! Not less than 29 players entered the tournament and made it one of the most interesting & thrilling tournaments in WPT history.

Bonomo, Rajkumar, Negreanu, Lindgren and Seidel made it to the final table after several hours of play. Of these players, Erik Seidel and Erick Lindgren ended up playing heads-up. However, during level 20, both players decided to take a break and continue the day after (Friday).

Yesterday (Friday), Seidel returned to a 7,120,000 stack and Lindgren 4,480,000 and the game was on again. Erik Seidel out-shined Lindgren and laid hands on the first place prize of $1,092,000. Erick Lindgren got $700,500 as runner-up. It seems like nothing and no one can stop Erik Seidel this year. In total he has won $5.4 million this year and he's also the biggest winner in live tournament history.

Big congratulations to mister Erik Seidel. He basically proves again he is really one of the top poker players of all times. He is the best live tournament player so far judged on the total winnings he had so far.
On the other hand there were some though competition on this event particullary when you have registered players like Daniel Negreanu or Bonome, known to be very good live tournament players. You have to agree that you also need to have a bit of luck on this tournaments but on such a big data frame that we analyze we clearly see that poker strategy and knowledge is a lot more important than luck on the poker game.
Congratulations again to Erik Seidel for his amazing run!

Well, unfortunately Seidel won, but congrats anyway. I was cheering for Lindgren, but Seidel played it well and won. Both played well, everyone knows how tough are opponents in tournaments like this. Another big win for Seidel, as I mentioned in the other news I don't like him, but he deserved to win.
