WPT $100k Super High Roller Title May go to Either Erik or Erick

No matter what the outcome of the WPT $100,000 Super High Roller Event, one thing’s for sure, it’s going to a guy whose name is a derivative of the name, Eric. What’s interesting about the battle, though, is that if it’s Erik Seidel who wins, he’s going to add yet another title to his long list of achievements this year. But he’s going to have to go through Erick Lindgren first, not an easy opponent by any means. They’re going to sit down and battle it out at the Bellagio this Friday afternoon for the grand prize of $1,092,780, as well as the bragging rights for the Super High Roller Title.

When Stars Fall

There were 29 players who turned up for the super high roller event, many of them considered to be the best of the best in the industry. By day 2, the field whittled down to only 17, with Justin Bonomo in the lead. Several prestigious pros were sent to the rail early on, such as Gabe Kaplan, Yevgeniy Timoshenko, and Eugene Katchalov. Soon enough, the field whittled down to the ten people who would make up the tournament’s final table – a truly star-studded affair indeed. The one with the shortest stack was Ashton Griffin with 275,000. He was followed by Cary Katz with 350,000 chips and Randy Dorfman with 550,000 chips. Next was Sam Tricket who had 620,000 chips, and then Rick Salomon with 740,000 chips. Then, there was Daniel Negreanu who had 800,000 chips. Then, there was Erick Lindgren with 1,450,000 chips and Vivek Rajkumar with 1,850,000 chips. Erick Seidel was in second place with 1,950,000 and finally, Justin Bonomo with 2,470,000. It was Rick Salomon who was first to go, and the final three were Seidel, Negreanu, and Lindgren. Negreanu was sent to the rails by Lindgren.

Heads Up

The two Eric’s were left to battle it out for the title as well as the grand prize. But both were very formidable players, so even after three hours of play, not one of them would let up. They were then given the option to go home first and to have the match resume on Friday afternoon. They took this opportunity and retired for the evening. Seidel is currently the chip leader, with 7,120,000 chips in his stack. Lindgren will have to fight him with 4,480,000 chips. It’s a considerable gap, but not one that’s entirely decisive. At this point, it could go either way.
