Scott Seiver Wins PartyPoker Premier League V

2012 PartyPoker Premier League
Share this

World Series of Poker bracelet owner and 2011 Word Poker Tour Championship winner Scott Seiver scored another big win in his poker career by outplaying some of the biggest names in the poker world to become the PartyPoker Premier League V champion and collect the main cash prize of $500,000. Seiver came back after a rather slow start when he scored 0 points in the second Heat in Group B. However, his runner up finish in the first Heat and Heat 3 pole position allowed Seiver to advance to the final table.

Premier League V Pre-Final Table Chip Counts:

PlayerChip Count
Mathew Frankland400,000
Daniel Cates380,000
Sam Trickett330,000
Patrik Antonius320,000
Tony G300,000
Scott Seiver300,000
Phil Laak290,000
Tom Dwan280,000

Although he came to the final table with a bit smaller stack than most of his opponents, Seiver took advantage of the situation while the rest of the players were sending each other to the rail by exploiting the chances he had.

First off the table was last year's Partouche Poker Tour and Aussie Millions champion Sam Trickett who was eliminated by Daniel Cates' pocket kings. Premier League's discovery, online qualifier, and a chip leader coming to the final table, Mathew Frankland, did not stand the test of time and went out in seventh place after his pocket sevens bumped into Cates' pair of queens.

Going out in sixth place was Tom Dwan who went all in holding K-6, but didn't get any help from the board and therefore lost to Seiver's pocket sevens. Tony G cashed $100,000 for his fifth place finish after getting busted by the same Daniel Cates who's A-Q paired a queen on the flop eliminating Tony with A-K. It was then Antonius' turn to go when his A-9 ran into Laak's pocket queens.

However, Laak soon left the table with a $175,000 third place payday leaving Seiver heads-up against Cates. Although their chip stacks were fairly equal with a small advantage on Cates' side, Seiver very soon made things go his way gaining a 2-1 chip lead and finishing his opponent rather fast. Cates pushed his entire stack to the middle of the felt holding pocket sevens and Seiver called with K-Q, the flop and the river did not favor Seiver, but a King on the river put the wrap on Premier League V.

Seiver went home with the main cash prize of half a million dollars while Cates settled for $300,000.
