Ok, this is getting ridiculous Scott.

Scott Seiver, who at 39, is still one year away from being eligible for the Poker Hall of Fame, won his third World Series of Poker bracelet at the 2024 games in the $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw Championship.

Seiver came into the Series with four bracelets and is now in a five-way tie for fifth on the all-time list with seven, joining Billy Baxter (who ran deep in this event, finishing 14th), John Hennigan, Men Nguyen and recent $50,000 Players Champion Daniel Negreanu, who ended a 10-year bracket drought on Friday.

Seiver was part of a field of 186 entrants who generated a prize pool of $1,729,800. He took $411,041 of that, adding it to a pile of 2024 cashes that includes three victories. He also won the $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship for $426,744, and then a $1,500 Razz event for $141,374.

“I feel very satisfied right now,” Seiver told WSOP reporters. “I can’t really describe it. I’m like on Cloud Nine right now. This just means so much to me, and it also is a step in a personal journey I’ve made for myself where I’ve had a pie-in-the-sky dream where I want to win one bracelet in every single discipline there is.”

That’s a tall order, but Seiver has crossed six disciplines off the list: No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw, Razz, Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better, Freezeout No Limit Hold’em, Limit Hold’em and No Limit Hold’em (he has two in Razz).

Seiver has competition

Seiver sits on top of the WSOP Player of the Year race with 3,757.01 points, but Jermey Ausmus is right behind him with 3,368.48. Ausmus, who owns six WSOP bracelets, is doing everything except winning bracelets this summer. He finished fourth in this event, the sixth time he’s made a final table this year.

His biggest cash came in the $100,000 High Roller event where he finished second for $1,892,260. All three of Seiver’s wins in 2024 don’t get close to that amount. It was his third million-or-more score, pushing his lifetime total over $20 million.

Ausmus also finished sixth for $200,896 in the $50,000 Poker Players Championship that was won by Daniel Negreanu and seventh in the most expensive buy-in event of the Series, the $250,000 Super High Roller, for $754,052.

Behind them is Chris Hunichen, Phil Ivey, Bryce Yockey, Daniel Negreanu, and a host of others who still have time to get Seiver-hot and vault to the top of the list.

Seiver sits on top by becoming the seventh player in WSOP history to win three bracelets in a Series. Puggy Pearson did it in 1973, Phil Hellmuth and Ted Forrest in 1993, Phil Ivey in 2002, Jeffrey Lisandro in 2009, and George Danzer in 2014.

The Player of the Year prize has been awarded since 2002, and Lisandro and Danzer won it in the years they scored triples.
