Aussie Millions Pot-Limit Omaha Event Winner Erik Seidel

Aussie Millions Pot-Limit Omaha Event Winner Erik SeidelErik Seidel has won the $10,000 buy-in Aussie Millions Pot-Limit Omaha Event after beating a field of 26 players over two days to take the title and the $120,000 first place prize.
The field might have been small but it was filled with tough players all vying to make it at least into the top five payed places. As Day 1 played out until the small hours, the field was reduced to just four players with the 5th place finish and $15,000 going to Rafi Amit. Top professionals that weren’t so lucky on this occasion included Chris Ferguson, Jeffrey Lisandro, Tony Bloom, Jamie Pickering, and Ross Boatman.
The four remaining players to return on Day 2 were Michael Guttman — 172,100, Mike Watson — 166,50, Erik Seidel — 130,900 and Florian Langmann — 51,200.
The action might have started slowly but finally picked up when Langmann raised to 7,500 preflop holding Kd Qs Js 7s, and was called by Seidel with As Qd 10d 2s, and by Michael Guttmann. After the board fell Ks Jc 5s, Guttmann checked, Langmann bet 16,000, was re raised all-in by Seidel, Guttmann got out of the way and Langmann made the call with his two pair and flush draw. However, it was Seidel’s ace high flush that won the pot after a 4s 5c fell on the turn and river, and Langmann exited the competition in fourth for $25,000.
It was another hour before third place was decided after Mike Watson holding Kd 9s 8d 7h moved in on a flop of 9c 8s 4s and Guttmann with 9h 8c 7s 6s made the call.  Guttmann made his flush when a Qs Ks came on the turn and river, and Watson was out in third place for $35,000.
Heads-up was a swingy affair between Seidel and Guttmann, but the tournament eventually came to a conclusion when Guttmann’s two pair and busted flush draw lost to Seidel’s straight and he had to be content with a runner-up position and $65,000 prize money.
With his Aussie Millions PLO victory, Seidel has now won 22 live tournaments, including 8 WSOP bracelets and has earned close to $10 million over his illustrious poker career.
