Season IX of the World Poker Tour drew to a close last night with Scott Seiver taking the $25,000 WPT Championship event at Bellagio.
The 26-year-old pocketed a first prize of $1,618,344 and a seat in next year's WPT Championship event after outlasting a high class final table that included Justin Young, Tony Gargano and Roger Teska. After PCA winner Galen Hall was eliminated in third it was left to Farzad Bonyadi to try and halt the Seiver express. He couldn't manage it though, hitting the buffers when his two pair ran into Seiver's straight. A seven-figure score should provide Bonyadi plenty of consolation though.Seiver, primarily a cash game player, now has career tournament earnings of over $4.5m.The final table positions and payouts were as follows:1. Scott Seiver — $1,618,3442. Farzad Bonyadi — $1,061,9003. Galen Hall — $589,3554. Roger Teska — $371,6655. Tony Gargano — $278,7496.
