Erik Seidel is self-confessed music obsessive, and as such has dedicated an area of his website to listing all the albums on his i-pod.
Erik Siedel has won an impressive 8 World Series of Poker bracelets and a World Poker Tour title. Such impressive achievements have not gone unnoticed, and as such Siedel was inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame in 2010.
Born in New York, Siedel started out as a tournament Backgammon player; and then, after eight years, began to play the stock market before eventually moving to poker. It was in New York that Siedel joined the (now famous) group of players from the Mayfair Club. No longer in New York, Siedel now calls Las Vegas his home.
Erik Siedel's website states that his career tournament poker winnings total in excess of $14 million - nearly $4.5 million of which he has won at the WSOP. His 69 money finishes at WSOP means he ranks 3rd of all time.
