In 2010, Erik Seidel won over $530,000 playing poker. To most normal humans, this would be life-changing money, or at the very least it would represent their best-ever year in poker earnings, probably never to be repeated. Erik Seidel, on the other hand, is no normal human – with over $4.3 million won so far this year, his total half-million-plus earnings from last year represent just about 9 days of 2011 “work”.
Can a poker player possibly win $40 million in one year? Though the thought sounds preposterous, Erik Seidel is actually on pace to win that much money in 2011, having just wrapped up a January that saw him take home a whopping $3.4 million.
