Erik Seidel leading final of World Poker Tour $100k event. Obv.

Mops the pots up, you copped he flopped nuts, Ivey pops up begging Erik for coaching. We thought that The Micros, SrslySirius and DRibes’ efforts in Seiborg were a semi-joke but now Erik Seidel is on his way to a third title in a $100,000 buy-in event as well as his fifth million of 2011. Mental.

The super-stacked field of 29 in the WPT Super High Roller event is down to just two with the elimination of Daniel Negreanu in third place. Remaining between Erik Seidel and another million dollars is Erick Lindgren, making this the battle of the Full Tilt pros. Lindgren is outchipped by roughly 2-1 but stacks are still very deep.

Our boy Sam Trickett was knocked out in eighth place, unfortunately just outside of the money. Justin Bonomo and Vivek Rajkumar joined Daniel Negreanu in the winners’ circle, the three took home $224,160; $336,240;$448,320 respectively. Lindgren or Seidel (who are we kidding, Lindgren) is guaranteed a second-place prize of $700,500 while Erik Seidel will inevitably walk away with the $1,092,780 first prize to add to his Scrooge McDuck-like pile of money.

Here's what Lindgren is up against!
