Erik Seidel Overtakes Ivey On Poker All Time Money List

A little over a month since moving to 3rd on poker’s ‘All Time Money List,’ US pro Erik Seidel has now overtaken Phil Ivey in 2nd spot after a victory last night at the L.A. Poker Classic High Roller Event for $144,570.
Recently inducted Poker Hall of Famer Seidelwas previously around $57,000 behind Phil Ivey on $13,859,944 in live tournament winnings. However, yesterday’s win in Los Angeles has now propelled Seidel’s earnings to a staggering $13,947,297 and he’s now siting a mere $168,895 behind Daniel Negreanu in top spot.
The 8 times WSOP bracelet winner has always represented a major force in the game but even by his own standard 2011 has already been an incredible year for Seidel. In a previous interview Seidel had said he preferred playing tournaments to cash games but on the downside explained:
“It’s so easy these days to go through hundreds of thousands just playing tournaments. The fields have grown so much that your wins are bigger these days but sometimes you can go a long while between wins.”
However, over the past couple of months Seidel’s chickens have come back to roost with a vengeance with $3,592,284 in winnings including five final tables and now two tournament wins including the Aussie Millions $250k Super High Roller for $2,489,747. After winning that event Seidel commented:
“I’m really, really excited to win this. This was very special because it’s such an elite field. The entry fee was so big, I didn’t want to lose $250,000. I’m just having such an amazing month, year so far. It’s just incredible.”
With his latest win at the $25k L.A. Poker Classic High Roller Event, Eric Seidel’s 2011 shows no signs of abating and the 51 year-old from Las Vegas will now have high hopes of capturing the top spot from Negreanu over the coming months.
