The top seven spots in the tournament will pay, and there are currently eight players left. The eventual tournament winner will walk away with $771,300, while the runner-up will take home $557,100.


Let's move our focus back to Erik Seidel for a second.

Over the past few years, Seidel has absolutely terrorized and dominated his competition in high roller and Super high roller events.

Let's look at Erik Seidel's results in High Roller and Super High Roller events since the start of 2011:

-2011 $25,000 PCA High Roller - 4th, $295,960

-2011 $100,000 Aussie Millions - 3rd, $618,139

-2011 $250,000 Aussie Millions - 1st, $2,472,555

-2011 LAPC High Roller - 1st, $144,570

-2011 Five Star World Poker Classic Super High Roller - 1st, $1,092,780

-2012 €50,000 EPT Barcelona Super High Roller - 6th, $188,721

That is well over $4.5 million in High Roller and Super High Roller cashes for Erik Seidel over the past 2 1/2 years, which is a pretty incredible run.


Seidel will enter the final table with 1,145,000 in chips, while the leader (Ole Schemion) has nearly 4 million.

Having said that, Seidel is going to be a very tough out at tomorrow's final table, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him take down another High Roller event.
