Erik Seidel: Master of His Domain

By Pauly

Erik Seidel is not just running good...he's en feugo.

It appeared that the peak of Seidel's run good occurred during a two week stretch in January when he won over $3.4 million. Ah, but that wasn't the case. Seidel's fortuitous run continued when he shipped the High Roller event at the L.A. Poker Classic.

It's been an auspicious 2011 for Seidel. His magical mystery tour began in the Bahamas, continued through Oz, and spilled over into Los Angeles...

- Seidel took 4th place in the $25,000 High Rollers event at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure.

- Seidel then flew to Melbourne, Australia to play in the Aussie Millions. He played in the $100,000 (Aussie Bucks) High Roller event and finished in 3rd place.

- During the highly controversial $250,000 (AUD) Super High Roller Event, Seidel smoked the field and finished in first place winning $2.5 million AUD. At the time, the Australian Dollar was almost on par with the USD.

- On the last day of February, Seidel won the LAPC $25,000 High Rollers Event at the at Commerce Casino. Even though Seidel negotiated a three-way deal with Elky and Darren Elias, he still pulled out the victory.

Here's Seidel's winner's interview with Matt Savage...

What's next for Seidel? Supremacy in the NBC Heads-Up Championship? High Roller events at the EPT Grand Finale in Madrid? Will his run good be extended into this summer? How many bracelets will he win? Or will Seidel struggle with much bigger fields at the WSOP?

One thing is for sure, Seidel is hot.I'd love to know who he picks for March Madness this year.
