Hand #154: Scott Seiver Wins the WPT World Championship ($1,618,344)

May 20, 2011

Scott Seiver min-raises to 400,000, and Farzad Bonyadi calls. Both players check to the river on a board of [10c6d2sQcKs], Bonyadi checks, Seiver bets 600,000, and Bonyadi check-raises to 1,600,000.

Seiver thinks for about 15 seconds before he moves all in. Bonyadi tanks for three minutes before he calls.

Seiver turns over Js9d for a king-high straight — the second nuts. Bonyadi shows [Qs10h] for two pair, but it’s not enough. Bonyadi is eliminated in second place, earning $1,061,900.

Scott Seiver wins the pot — and the WPT World Championship — with a king-high straight. Seiver earns $1,618,344, a WPT bracelet, a Bellagio bracelet, and his prize money includes entry into next season’s WPT World Championship.
