Full Tilt Poker Team - Erik Seidel

Erik Seidel


Erik Seidel was born and raised in New York, where he was a competitive backgammon player. He spent about 8 years on the backgammon tournament circuit, but moved on to the stock market. On Wall Street, Erik traded GNMA's for PaineWebber, stock options on the AMEX, and stocks. Now living in Las Vegas, poker has been Erik's focus for quite some time now.

Erik has an impressive record in heads-up play, but may be most famous for a loss - his 2nd place finish in the '88 WSOP against Johnny Chan earned him an appearance in the movie "Rounders". Don't let that 2nd place finish fool you, that was his first major tournament. Since then, he's come out on top in all his heads-up battles against the likes of Chan, Helmuth, and Cloutier.

One of the leading money winners in tournament poker, Erik Seidel is the only player on both the WSOP and the Bellagio top 10 all time money lists. 6 WSOP titles, 4 Bellagio titles and numerous other wins add up to over 5 million in tournament winnings. Erik Seidel was also the points leader in the Champion of the Year standings for 2002-2003.

When Erik Seidel is not busy in his role as Poker Heavyweight, you'll find Erik listening to music or playing tennis.

You can play with Erik Seidel at his own table at on-line poker room Full Tilt Poker.
