Erik Seidel



Erik Seidel, born and raised in New York, started out as a professional backgammon player. He spent eight years on the tournament backgammon circuit before moving on to playing the stock market and, finally, to poker.

In Erik's first major tournament, the 1988 World Series of Poker Championship Event, Erik came in second. The final hand of this tournament was featured in the film "Rounders," with Johnny Chan flopping the nut straight and trapping Seidel, who went all-in on the river.

With 7 WSOP bracelets under his belt, Erik Seidel has achieved great success in the years since that fateful hand. He continues to be a top player, currently residing in Las Vegas, Nevada.
