Scott Seiver came into the 2024 World Series of Poker on a mission to win the WSOP Player of the Year race and cement his status as a top Poker Hall of Fame nominee when he becomes eligible next year. Things have gone quite well through the three weeks into the series, as the 39-year-old poker pro based out of Las Vegas has already managed to take down two events. He earned his fifth career bracelet just a handful of days into the festival, taking down the $10,000 Omaha eight-or-better championship event for $426,744. Twelve days removed from that win, he triumphed in the $1,500 razz tournament for his second bracelet of the summer and his sixth overall.

This victory made Seiver just the 23rd player in poker history to have reached six or more bracelet wins. It also saw him maintain a 25-year streak of at least one player earning multiple bracelets in a single year. Chris Ferguson kicked off this run by taking down both a $2,500 seven-card stud event and the WSOP main event in 2000. Josh Arieh, Chris Brewer, Ryan Miller, Chad Eveslage, Yuri Dzivielevski, Artur Martirosian, and Ben Wilinofsky all won multiple bracelets in 2023.

Seiver now has two bracelets in razz, joining his two no-limit hold’em victories from 2008 and 2022. His other two wins came in two separate $10,000 championship events: the 2018 limit hold’em championship and this year’s Omaha eight-or-better championship. Below is a look at all of his bracelet wins.

Year Tournament Top Prize
2008 $5,000 No-limit Hold’em $755,891
2018 $10,000 Limit Hold’em Championship $296,222
2019 $10,000 Razz $301,421
2022 $2,500 Freezeout No-limit Hold’em $320,059
2024 $10,000 Omaha Eight-or-Better Championship $426,744
2024 $1,500 Razz $141,374

This latest win saw Seiver overcome a field of 547 entries. The $1,500 buy-in event ended up with a $730,245 prize pool which was split up amongst the top 83 finishers. Plenty of big names joined Seiver in running deep, including three-time bracelet winner David ‘ODB’ baker (43rd), four-time bracelet winner Julien Martini (37th), three-time bracelet winner John Cernuto (33rd), three-time bracelet winner Frank Kassela (29th), three-time bracelet winner Mike Gorodinsky (24th), two-time bracelet winner John Racener (16th), and four-time bracelet winner Ben Yu (8th).

Yu was the first player to fall at the official final table, running into the 8-7 low of bracelet winner Maxx Coleman to earn $13,105. Two-time bracelet winner Brandon Shack-Harris then knocked out Brad Lindsey (7th – $17,313) to narrow the field to six.

After Akihiro Kawaguchi (6th – $23,349) bowed out, Seiver eliminated Sonny Osman (5th – $32,136) with a 6-5-4-2-A. Shack-Harris knocked out Coleman in fourth place ($45,117) to leave just three contenders remaining.

Seiver won a massive pot with 9-7-5-3-A to both eliminate Ingo Klasen (3rd) and take a huge chunk out of Shack-Harris’ stack. All of the chips soon went in with Shack-Harris holding (5-2)J against Seiver’s (6-4)10. Seiver made a 10-7-6-4-A in the end, besting Shack-Harris’ Q-J-6-5-2 to win the pot and the title. Shack-Harris earned $94,247 as the runner-up.

Seiver now has more than $26.4 million in career tournament earnings after this win, with more than $6.9 million in cashes at the WSOP. He also earned 840 Card Player Player of the Year points, enough to move within reach of the top 100 in the 2024 POY standings presented by Global Poker.
