Poker Icon Erik Seidel Wins Tenth Bracelet in WSOP Paradise $50K High Roller

Erik Seidel wins WSOP Paradise $50K High Roller

Event number seven at the prestigious WSOP Paradise series in the Bahamas became very important for the famous high roller Erik Seidel. He managed to win an expensive tournament with an entry fee of 50 thousand dollars and received the championship title along with huge prize money. However, that's not all – this win brought Erik his tenth gold bracelet, which allowed him to join the so-called elite club.

This club now has four members with ten bracelets each (one of them, unfortunately, has already passed away). And there is a confident leader with 17 trophies in the person of Phil Hellmuth, who can afford to come to the game in the guise of Poseidon.

"Any time you win a bracelet is just an incredibly special thing. To get to ten, I don’t know, it’s a beautiful feeling."

Seidel is now 64 years old. He won his first gold bracelet back in 1992. His longest break was between winning the eighth and ninth trophies – a whole 14 years. Erik currently has over $45 million in prize money from offline events in his career.
