Erik Seidel Wins First WPT at Foxwoods

Erik Seidel was crowned the winner at the WPT Foxwoods Poker Classic after an epic six handed final table lasted a punishing 12 hours and 229 hands.

After entering the final table with the chip lead, the Full Tilt Pro, took control of the final table and he never relinquished his lead.

Erik Seidel has a very impressive resume that includes 8 WSOP bracelets but this was his first ever WPT title.

Seidel is off to a great start this year after finishing runner up to Alexander Kostritsin in the 2008 Aussie Millions.

The final payouts were as follows:

1st: Erik Seidel – $992,890
2nd: Robert Richardson – $558,792
3rd: Andrew Barta – $281,011
4th: Frank Cieri – $200,261
