Scott Seiver did it again. The 39-year-old professional won his fifth World Series of Poker bracelet in the $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo or Better Championship this week for $426,744. It’s his second bracelet in a “championship” event.

“This was exhausting,” he told a WSOP reporter. “I wouldn’t be surprised if this was one of if not the longest non-Main Event tournament there has been. I feel great now that I’ve won.”

The four-day event attracted 197 who created a prize pool of $1,832,100. Seiver’s 72 WSOP cashes puts him at $6.7 million, and with the victory, his lifetime number shot above $26 million.

The five bracelet club is a crowded with 15 players, including Poker Hall of Famers Eli Elezra, Scotty Nguyen and Stu Unger, Allen Cunningham, Michael Mizrachi, John Juanda, Adam Friedman, Brian Yoon, and Benny Glaser, who finished sixth here.

They’re all 12 away from Phil Hellmuth and his 17 bracelets.

Seiver won his first bracelet in a 2008 $5,000 no-limit event for $755,891. It then took him a full decade to win his second in the $10,000 limit championship in 2018 for $292,222. The very next year he won the $10,000 Razz event for $301,421.

His fourth bracelet came in the $2,500 freezeout event in 2022.

Seiver also has three runner-up finishes in WSOP events: The 2022 $10,000 2-7 lowball draw championship, the 2018 $2,500 mixed triple draw lowball event, and the 2013 $2,500 seven card stud event. He’s finished 10th or better in WSOP events 23 times.

Those finishes include final tables in some of the more prestigious events that take place at the WSOP — a seventh-place finish in the $50,000 Player’s Championship in 2011, a sixth in the $1 million buy-in Big One for One Drop in 2014, and a fifth in the $10,000 HORSE championship in 2023 are a few.

Away from the WSOP, his biggest cash of $5.1 million came for finishing second in the $500,000 buy-in Super High Roller Bowl in 2015. He cashed for $2 million for winning the 2013 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. He also won the 2011 $25,000 buy-in  Five Star World Poker Classic on the World Poker Tour for $1.6 million.

And he won’t be eligible for the Poker hall of Fame until he turns 40 next year.
