Erik Seidel wins his ninth WSOP gold bracelet
The 11th scheduled tournament, namely $10 000 Super Million$, has ended at the WSOP Online 2021. The victory and a gold bracelet went to legendary Erik Seidel. By the way, this is his ninth career WSOP trophy.
The last time Seidel took down the WSOP event was 14 years ago, but his first gold Erik bracelet won back in 1992. And now, the poker professional again managed to emerge victorious. Seidel also became the first poker player with more than five bracelets to win this award online.
It should be mentioned that Seidel made only one entry, while his heads-up opponent and the event runner-up, Francisco Benitez, made as many as 9 re-entries, each worth $10 000. But they paid off anyway, as Benitez received $759 000 in prize money.
At the final table, Erik faced tough regulars and experienced online fighters. Rui Ferreira, Claas Segebrecht, Thomas Muehloecker, Isaac Baron – everyone wanted to take the top prize, but Seidel outplayed them, becoming the winner.
