Erik Seidel has won the $250,000 Aussie Millions Super High Rollers poker tournament, bringing his career winnings to near $14 million.  That $250,000 was not the cashout, it was the buy-in.  Seidel walked off with $2.5 million for winning this event.

Seidel competed against 19 of the best poker players in the world, each of whom put in the $250,000.  He beat out the likes of Phil Ivey, Annette Obrestad, Tom Dwan and Chris Ferguson. 

This was the biggest poker buy-in of its kind.

Seidel is the most recent Poker Hall of Fame entrant.
