Legendary hall of famer Erik Seidel has proven he’s still a force to be reckoned with in tournament poker, taking down his ninth WSOP bracelet.

Seidel won Event #11 the $10,000 Super Million High Roller of 2021’s WSOP Online, taking place on GGPoker, for a first place prize of $977,842.

The WSOP (World Series of Poker) normally takes place in Las Vegas at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, but due to the pandemic many poker tournaments are currently hosted online.

Las Vegas Legend

A newspaper based in Seidel’s hometown, the Las Vegas Review Journal noted that the Vegas native has now moved up the all-time leaderboard to tie Johnny Moss with nine bracelets.

He’s also the first player with over five WSOP bracelets to win a WSOP Online bracelet, showing that the older generation can still compete with today’s online whizzkids on the virtual felt.

Seidel turns 62 years old in November this year. This was his first bracelet win in 14 years.

Siedel moved to Nevada from New York to play poker professionally at Vegas casinos in the 80s, famously finishing runner-up in the 1988 World Series of Poker Main Event to Johnny ‘the Master’ Chan, who featured in poker movie Rounders.
