Scott Seiver Wins WSOP Event#10: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship

Scott Seiver has added another World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet to his collection, taking home his fifth career bracelet in Event #10: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship. Seiver bested a total of 171 entries, securing the top prize of $426,744.

Seiver’s WSOP journey began in 2008 when he won the $5,000 no-limit hold’em event. After a decade-long wait, he claimed his second bracelet and has since won four in the past six years. His latest victory marks his third win in a $10,000 championship event, following successes in the 2018 limit hold’em championship and the 2019 razz championship.

“This summer, I decided to focus on tournaments and bring my A-game. Winning the first $10k feels very validating,” said Seiver after his win.

Now 39 and based in Las Vegas, Seiver has amassed nearly $26.2 million in career tournament earnings. Despite not being a full-time tournament player, his success in high-stakes events is notable.

The four-day event had a prize pool of $1,590,300, with the top 30 finishers cashing in. Big names like Tom Koral (18th), John Hennigan (17th), Naoya Kihara (16th), Robert Mizrachi (14th), John Racener (11th), Jared Bleznick (8th), Jake Schwartz (7th), and Benny Glaser (6th) made deep runs.

Seiver faced Jonathan Cohen, a Canadian bracelet winner, in the heads-up play. Seiver began with a 3:1 chip lead and extended it further. In the final hand, Seiver raised from the button with A♥9♦8♠4♦, and Cohen called all-in with K♦8♦5♥4♠. The board showed K♣J♠J♥7♠10♣, giving Seiver a jack-high straight and the win. Cohen took home $284,495, his highest career cash.

“This was exhausting. I wouldn’t be surprised if this was one of the longest non-Main Event tournaments. I feel great now that I’ve won,” Seiver said.

Reflecting on his victory, Seiver noted, “This bracelet actually means a lot to me. I came into this summer with a real desire to win as many bracelets as I can.”

When asked about his strategy, Seiver explained, “My style of play, especially in Omaha 8 or Better or split pot games, allows me to survive on a short stack for a long time.”

Seiver also addressed his thoughts on the Poker Hall of Fame, which he missed out on in 2023, saying, “Turning 40 next year, I wanted to play these tournaments and put some cherries on top of the resume. Some people might have forgotten me because I’ve been playing high-stakes cash games, but I wanted to remind them I’m still here.”

Comparing his career to that of Brian Rast who was voted into the Poker Hall of Fame last year, Seiver added, “I’ve been one of the best in the world at cash games, heads-up no-limit tournaments, and almost any form of poker. It’s important to let people know that I’m still doing this.”
