PCA 2013: Scott Seiver Wins The Super High Roller!

Tags: 2013 pokerstars caribbean adventure, David Sands, doc sands, scott seiver, super high roller.
Posted on 08 January 2013 by "T".

When the final table of the Super High Roller started yesterday, David "Doc" Sands had nearly half the chips in play. Sands, as many expected, remained in the lead for most of the day as the field was reduced.

After Nick Schulman had been eliminated in 3rd place during Level 23 (80,000/160,000+20k ante), Sands and Scott Seiver were the last men standing. Sands had about 60 percent of the chips in play, and Seiver was willing to split the prize money if Sands agreed to forfeit five percent of equity. Sands didn't accept and the match kicked off.

The heads up was very even until Level 24 (100k/200k+30k ante) started. Seiver bet 400k on the button with 9Heart9Diamond, Sands raised to 900,000 with 10Club10Heart. Seiver went all in straight away for 6.22 million. Sands made the call.

Seiver got lucky as the flop came down 3Spade7Spade9Spade. The turn and river cards ran out 4Club6Heart and Seiver took down a massive pot. Sands went all in with his few remaining chips a few hands later, and Seiver called.

Seiver: AClub7Spade
Sands: KHeart4Diamond

The board ran out QDiamond8Diamond5Diamond9Heart3Heart and Scott Seiver was crowned the champion! Seiver receivde $2,003,480 for the win - the largest prize in his career. Sands received $1,259,320 for his second place finish. He will probably have nightmares for a very long time about the hand that cost him almost the entire stack (1010 vs 99).

I seen Scott play a few times on tv and i think he's great.
He makes crazy calls and bets, especially when i seen him play cash games.

Although he got lucky here he is the real deal.

well lets be honest here- a bad beat cost david almost 800K, and seiver just got lucky when i mattered, i'm not arguing whether he's a good or bad player- he just caught the right cards at the most important moment. lool now david is probably thinking that he should have agreed to split the prize-pool
 Mysik8608/01/2013 11:43:54 GMT
Nice cash... and Seiver will adore 99 from this time Blink This was the turning point in this HU

It shouldn't have been easy to see the first time ran away from our hands because of a well played hand. 99 vs 1010 is a runner runner, 1010 ahead pre-flop, but after the flop things are completely different and, in this case, the tables cards brought the victory to the weaker hand and that kept till the end. Then it was just a matter of time.

The $100,000 Super High Roller event attracted a respectable field of 59, which consisted of some of the biggest names in poker including Jason Mercier, Antonio Esfandiari, Tobias ' Reinkemeier, ElkY, Vanessa Selbst, Tom Dwan, Phil Ivey and Daniel Negreanu.
They all would have to step aside for WPT and WSOP winner Scott Seiver, who defeated David Sands heads up for the title and the $2 million first prize.

In the previous thread about the High Roller final table I think you will find one person who picked Scott Seiver as the winner - ME.

I know he hit lucky with the pocket 9's but lucky is made and we need to make our own luck........

Gl to you all......................... Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile

SAcott Seiver is lucky because that thing doesnt born for everyone! While the luck is with you, you just need to take a chance, because you never know when lucky will betray you!
 Macubaas09/01/2013 19:19:04 GMT
This is an amazing comeback for Scott on the high stakes online scene, as you all know he is one of the biggest winners on the draw games so far too Big Smile

I'm really looking forward to see more of him on the full tilt tables Smile

Hello

It can be seen again in poker, anything can happen! Only 60% of the chips, and even with the dominant cards called the all-in and there is only 1 ticket and almost all the chips are gone so that you have to go to the next all-in hand.
 damosk11/01/2013 07:36:03 GMT
A nice end to the year and a good start to a new one for Scott....... I'm not sure it matters that it comes down to a few lucky cards or quality play, as whichever way, he won and if we all think of our best wins, there was a huge lucky turn or river involved!
