WSOP 2022: Scott Seiver Enters Flip & Go 43 Times 

Players at the World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2022 and around the world are a bit stunned to hear about Scott Seiver’s unfortunate time at the Flip & Go tournament. Seiver was having a great run at WSOP 2022 as he won his fourth bracelet Event #3: $2,500 Freezeout NLHand took home $320,059. However, the American pro did not last long when he sat down to play the $1,000 Flip & Go event.

The Flip & Go event was launched in WSOP 2021 which features a unique format where players have to pay a buy-in of $1,000 and will be seated alongside seven other players on the table. The dealer will then deal three cards to the players who have to play the flop on a compulsory basis. After this, players will look at their three cards and discard one. Then the turn and river cards will be fanned out.

The hand that wins at showdown will get into the tournament and will also finish in the money. The players who do not make it will then have a chance to decide if they want to go at it again. Unfortunately for Seiver, even after buying into the tournament for a record 43 times, he couldn’t even win a single flip and as a result, did not enter the tournament.

Even when Seiver hit good hands, he still lost which only added insult to injury. He made a straight twice but lost to a player who rivered a full house. The players had to win a seat to the tournament by 3 PM but Seiver ran out of time.

Here’s one of his bad beat moment’s caught on camera:

Seiver paid $43,000 to play 43 times in the Flip & Go tournament , and his entries made up for around 27% of the total tables that ran during the event. Even if Seiver managed to enter the event, he would have had to finish in 5th place or higher. However, despite his multiple losses, Seiver was still in good spirits and also ordered 120 drinks for his teammates and those who were watching on the rail. A total of 157 entries won a Flip & Go and automatically made the money. The min-cash stood at $2,500. 

Last year’s Flip & Go tournament winner was Dejuante Alexander which was also his first bracelet. He took home $180,665 in prize money. Some in the poker community have their own reservations about the event where they think players are buying their way to a guaranteed cash. Norman Chad called the tournament a ‘mockery of poker’ and shared a tweet about Seiver’s 43 entries.

Apart from the Seiver madness, this event saw a recreational poker player shipping the tournament. Christopher Chatman emerged victorious in the Event #24: $1,000 Flip & Go to grab his maiden WSOP bracelet. This first-time bracelet winner was the Day 1 chip lead who managed to beat a strong player field of 1,329 to nail the top spot. Chatman grabbed a cool $187,770 from a final prize pool of $1,182,810. The runner-up was Israeli player Rafi Elharar who added $116,050 to his bankroll from Event #24. 

This tournament hosted the Flip portion of the event on Day 1 with Day 2 witnessing 157 batting it out in Stage 2 of the tourney. In a post event interview with PokerNews, Chatman said, “I’m a recreational player so I have a regular full time job so I just play about once a month. I play some tournaments and cash as well.” When asked about his latest victory, this bracelet winner said, “It doesn’t even seem like it’s real.”
