2018 WSOP: Scott Seiver Wins Second Bracelet in Event #48: $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship

Tags: 2018 WSOP, Matt Szymaszek, Scott Seiver.
Posted on 29 June 2018 by "T".

Scott Seiver came back from being short-stacked at the bottom of the counts during five-handed action to make it to heads-up play against fellow American Matt Szymaszek.

The match was short and swingy. Seiver started with a 2-1 lead and quickly had Szymaszek down to just a few bets. Szymaszek then managed to come back from a 10-1 deficit to overtake the chip lead.

Seiver fought back well and pulled off a big bluff with jacks up, which left less than 30 big bets on the table. With limits so big it was all it took for Seiver to finally eliminate Szymaszek, who received $183,081 for his runner-up finish.

Seiver received $296,222 and the second WSOP bracelet of his career! Seiver has over $23 million in live tournament earnings, so the prize money and bracelet he won in this event might not seem like much. But Seiver admitted to WSOP reporters that the WSOP bracelet matters to him.

"I'll be honest," he said. "It matters a lot to me. It really does. I feel that I've really accomplished most things that I've set out to do in poker so far and honestly, even more than that."

Final Table Payouts (POY points in parentheses):

1st: Scott Seiver, $296,222 (1,008.68)
2nd: Matt Szymaszek, $193,081 (504.34)
3rd: Anthony Zinno, $129,186 (453.91)
4th: Christopher Chung, $93,009 (403.47)
5th: Matt Glantz, $68,352 (378.26)
6th: Philip Cordano, $51,296 (353.04)
7th: Daniel Zack, $39,329 (302.60)
8th: Michael Moore, $30,821 (277.39)
9th: Ken Deng, $24,700 (252.17)

Other Notables who made the money:
Among those cashing in Event #52 were Glaser (10th, $20,253), Nick Schulman (11th, $20,253), Mario Ho (12th, $20,253), Brock Parker (14th, $17,000), and John Hennigan (16th, $14,615).

Event #52, $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship, saw 114 top notch fixed-limit hold'em players who created a prize pool of $1,071,600. The last 18 players received a slice of the prize pool, with a minimum cash being worth $14,615.

I was quite surprised that Scott Seiver had only won one bracelet previous to winning this. This guy really is one of the very top players' in the world and i am sure he will win many more

Second bracelet on hos career. Not bad. Even better is the 23 millions total, he has so far from playing live tournaments.
So his winning might be even more if he has a good outcome,
from online games.

One of the best high stakes player so no surprise he won a 10k event with few entrants, watch out for him in the big drop if he will play it...

the players were a little bit so it was not very difficult to win ... of course this does not diminish the value of this victory .. the second bracelet is a sign of the skill of the poker game .... I'm not very familiar with this player ... probably worth a little reading about it .. .. maybe he is an interesting person

Honestly I would imagine that having over twenty millions in lifetime earnings is bit more important than having one bracelet after another...

To come back after a 10-1 deficit in a WSOP tournament at a final table is very encouraging for any player, professional or amateur. This american gambler Scott Seiver he had intuition and luck and won another bracelet. Very elegant for his career and i congratulate him for this success.

Congratulations to Scott Seiver!
I think I've played no-limit, pot-limit, and limit Hold'em poker games. I like playing Holde'm but limit game really doesn't suit me. I can't really make a huge bluff, and there tend to be more suckouts than there are in no-limit and pot-limit.
