Summary:

  • US player Scott Seiver has won his sixth WSOP Gold bracelet after reigning victorious in Event #40: $1,500 Razz.
  • This marks Seiver’s second bracelet scooped up in two weeks. 
  • The player joins the select group of six-time bracelet winners that features Shaun Deeb, Daniel Negreanu, and Josh Arieh. 

Scott Seiver has come out with flying colors out of Event #40: $1,500 Razz, an accomplishment that brought him his sixth World Series of Poker bracelet as well as his second bracelet in two weeks. 

Seiver’s dominance over his competitors also helped him take home $141,374 in prize money, adding to his total live earnings of $25,616,582 reported by The Hendon Mob. 

The US player started Day 3 as the chip leader, an advantage that he managed to maintain throughout most of the day.

“I Want to Win Five More”

While his latest win sent him straight into the elite group of fellow six-time WSOP bracelet winners that features iconic names like Brian Rast, Daniel Negreanu, Josh Arieh, and Shaun Deeb, Seiver doesn’t intend to put his ambition to rest anytime soon. 

In fact, the player is determined not to stop at six bracelets. He explained after his latest victory,  

I want to win five more [this summer].. But realistically, I’ll probably only win two more.

The win, therefore, did not come as a surprise for Seiver who had been carefully planning for his success and setting a goal for it.

However, Seiver, who competed against previous bracelet winners at the final table, with names like Brandon Shack-Harris, Ben Yu, and Maxx Coleman, admitted it was a “weird feeling” to set a goal “close to impossible and then take the steps to do it.”

“I Really, Truly Want to Win Player of the Year” 

It’s not only more bracelets that Seiver is after this summer. His summer plans also include winning Player of the Year and the Poker Hall of Fame.

“I really, truly want to win Player of the Year this year.”, he said, explaining he was preparing as much as possible to make it happen.

“It’s the entire motivator,” he commented while saying his latest victory should help him strengthen his resume for the Poker Hall of Fame.

“I’m going to keep going”, he added.

The WSOP continues on June 19 with Event #50: $10,000 Razz Championship.
