Richard Seymour in 35th place at World Series of Poker main event”

Seymour's stack slowly dwindled, though, as he was forced to make a series of tough folds with big hands, until he was reduced to 725,000 chips with blinds at 30,000/60,000 (and a 60,000 big blind ante).

Seymour was just one of 354 players left standing in the tournament Wednesday, he was in the top 40 after further competition. The victor will receive a $10 million prize; Seymour cashed in $59,295 for finishing in the 100-162 range. "And I made Day 2", Seymour explained. In 2017, he explained his motivation to ESPN's Bernard Lee. "I am fascinated with poker and really enjoy the game".

Seymour has become an avid poker player since he retired from football, taking part in the WSOP for the past several years.

For his efforts, Seymour earned a payday of $59,295 - the second-largest result of his poker career.

This year's WSOP main event, a no-limit Texas hold 'em style tournament, had a total of 8,569 entries. Considering he beat out 8,438 players, that's a pretty impressive feat. According to Cardplayer.com he's won $575,448 in casino events and $147,851 on the World Poker Tour. Not bad, considering it only cost him $10,000 to enter. While Seymour is bursting onto the national poker scene with this performance, he isn't brand new.
