Scott Seiver Wins PartyPoker Premier League V; Tony G Finishes Fifth

Posted at 08:03 2012-04-11 by Matthew Pitt

Scott Seiver has a World Poker Tour title and a World Series of Poker bracelet to his name and now he can add the PartyPoker Premier League V to his list of poker accomplishments after he won the $125,000 buy-in tournament yesterday in Vienna.

Each of the eight final table members started with different sized stacks depending on their performances in the four group matches that have been taking place all week so when the televised final table did kick off the chip stacks looked exactly like this:

1Mathew Frankland400,000
2Daniel Cates380,000
3Sam Trickett330,000
4Patrik Antonius320,000
5Tony G300,000
6Scott Seiver300,000
7Phil Laak290,000
8Tom Dwan280,000

First to be eliminated was Sam Trickett. He lost a huge percentage of his stack with {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts} against Patrik Antonius' aces and then got the rest of his now short stack in with {K-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} and ran into Cates' pocket kings. Not a good night for the Brit! He was followed to the exits shortly afterwards by his fellow countryman Mathew Frankland. The 23-year old qualified for this event but winning a seat to a live qualifier on PartyPoker then winning a live satellite, then winning his group but his luck ran out in the final. He four-bet shoved with sevens and Cates called off with {K-Clubs}{Q-Clubs} which then turned a queen to send Frankland to the rail.

From there Tom Dwan was sent packing by Seiver before the infamous Tony G committed his 192,000 stack (blinds 20,000/40,000) with {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs} and Cates called with {A-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} only for the board to run out {3-Spades}{Q-Spades}{J-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{5-Clubs} to send the Lithuanian-Australian to the rail in fifth place, a finish worth $100,000. Tony G is now scheduled to play in The Big Game tonight, a 48-hour cash game with blinds of €25/€50 with a €100 straddle.

Following Tony G to the sidelines was Antonius then Phil "The Unabomber" Laak, that last elimination setting up the heads-up battle between Seiver and Cates. Seiver trailed Cates ever so slightly in chips when the one-on-one battle began but almost immediately he stepped up the aggression and opened a two-to-one lead over the man better-known as "jungleman." The final hand saw Cates move all in with pocket sevens and Seiver call with {K-Hearts}{Q-Spades}/ The board ran out [ts{10-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{k-Spades} and with that Cates was busted out and Seiver announced as the champion!
