Erik Seidel out-earned BRACELET RACE field after putting together a final table run in the $10,000 No Limit Deuce to Seven Championship while Daniel Negreanu and Vanessa Selbst picked up a cashes for the first time halfway through the 2015 World Series of Poker.

Seidel’s 2015 campaign has three deep runs, all in $10,000 Championship events. He took 11th in the Razz event when Phil Hellmuth won his 14th bracelet, then Seidel finished 18th in the Omaha Hi-Lo event and final tabled the Deuce to Seven event.

Seidel’s results come at the expense of winning a ninth bracelet and ending his eight-year drought of tasting gold. Since he last won a WSOP event he’s made 12 final tables and finished runner-up once.

Hellmuth only added to his buy-ins column since winning number 14. He took a few days off, caught a Warriors game court-side but did manage to still feel depressed about poker.

Negreanu has the worst ROI of the group with 20 events played. But he broke through with his first cash of the summer with a 25th place finish in the $3,000 Limit Hold’em Six Max event.

Selbst put some crooked numbers on the board after netting two cashes in the last week. She first cashed for $4,563 in 413th place in the Monster Stack event and then placed 39th in the $1,500 Deuce to Seven Triple Draw event for $2,592.

Phil Ivey has yet to appear at the WSOP as he’s playing in Macau after the opening  of the Poker King Club at the Venetian Macau. He’s rumored to return for in time for the $50,000 Poker Players Championship on Sunday, June 21.

The second half of the schedule plays to the advantage for the group. It’s loaded with six more $10,000 Championship events, the $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha Six Max and the $111,111 High Roller for One Drop.
