Seidel Takes L.A. High Roller, Second Spot on All-Time List

| by

The Hall of Famer, who last month took third in the Aussie Millions AUD $100k buy-in a few days before winning the AUD $250k Super High Roller, collected $144,570 getting past a stacked field of 18 players at Commerce Casino in Los Angeles.

Seidel has earned more than $3.6 million in just the first two months of 2011 moving his career totals up to $13,947,297 and above Phil Ivey on the all-time leading money winner's list.

The top spot still belongs to Daniel Negreanu, but he now sits less than $200k above the red-hot Seidel.

After Josh Arieh bubbled the money finishing fourth a deal was struck before Seidel found pocket aces in a three-way all in hand against Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier’s ace-queen and Darren Elias' nines.
