Seiver Captures PCA Super High Roller Event

At the start of heads-up play, David “Doc” Sands had a 3-to-2 chip lead, and was the commanding favorite to take down the PCA $100,000 super high roller no-limit hold’em event.

27-year-old Scott Seiver, however, battled to overcome the deficit, taking home the title and $2,003,480, boosting his lifetime live tournament earnings to $6,939,373.

Seiver entered the final table in sixth position with just over 5% of the chips in play, while Sands had nearly 50% of all chips at the eight-handed final table.

The defining moment of the tournament came when Seiver minraised from the button to 400,000 with 9h9d and Sands 3-bet with 10h10c to 900,000. Seiver paused, then moved all-in and Sands snapped him off as a 4-to-1 favorite to win the hand and the super high roller title. The board, however, came down 9c7s3s4c6h, leaving Sands with just over 11 big blinds.

Former World Poker Tour champion and two-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Nick Schulman came third, pocketing $744,140, the third largest score of his career.

A record turnout of 59 entries in the rebuy tournament made it the largest field in an event with a buy-in of $100,000 or more. The total prize pool was $5,724,180.
