Very few poker fans knew Seth Davies a little over a year ago, but now the kid from Bend, Oregon is a fixture on the high-roller tournament scene.
Davies was recently featured on INSIDERS: Super High Roller Bowl 2018 on PokerGO and talked about his journey into the high roller scene.
“I’ve just put in the time, the work, you know working on the game as seriously and professionally as possible,” Davies said during his appearance on INSIDERS.
After being featured on INSIDERS, Davies secured the first High Roller win of his career taking home the trophy in Event #28 at the WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic for $341,920 in December.
He bested a final table that included some of the biggest names in the industry including Rainer Kempe, David Peters, Christoph Vogelsang, and Isaac Haxton.
Looking back on appearing on the PokerGO show INSIDERS, Davies admits that it brought a bit of extra pressure and exposure that he hadn’t previously anticipated.
“If nothing else, it let the people know that I was playing in the event and the casual fans might’ve had their eyes on me a bit more.”
With a full year of big events on the horizon, Davies will look to build on his strong finish to 2018 with some big results at the U.S. Poker Open. Up until recently, Davies was in strong contention in Event #1, but as of right now he’s no longer in contention. After a day off tomorrow due to the Pot Limit Omaha event, we expect to see Davies back in action during the $10,000 No Limit Hold’em Event #3 on Friday.
