Less than a week after claiming the most bounties in the NAPT Venetian High Roller Championship, Scott Seiver (pictured right) has claimed the $25,000 High Roller Championship at the L.A. Poker Classic .The tournament attracted 41 of the best players in the world and was played out over a three-day period. Coming into the final table, both Seiver and Daniel Alaei were virtually tied for the chip lead, so it was no surprise to see them playing heads up for the title in the end.The other spots at the final table were represented by Will Molson , Tommy Vedes , Lee Markholt and Jason Mercier .The crucial hand came when Seiver raised 3 2 on the button. Alaei (pictured left) made the call and then led on a 8 3 2 flop. Seiver raised and Alaei called. The turn was the Q and Seiver continued to fire.Alaei called and the river was the 3 . This time, Seiver over shoved the rest of his stack and Alaei went into the tank. After about a minute, he made the call and saw the bad news, mucking his cards quickly.Alaei was crippled and it was all over the very next hand when his Q-J failed to outdraw Seiver’s A-J. Alaei picked up $222,794 as a consolation prize and Seiver banked the lion’s share with $425,334. He also won a Tag Huer watch and the L.A. Poker Classic Championship trophy.Seiver picked up $215,000 at the NAPT Venetian High Roller event and $137,000 at the 2009 PCA High Roller event. In total, Seiver has earned over $2.1 million on the tournament tour. When asked why he was so successful in the High Roller events, Seiver explained that he was just having fun at the table.“I just really enjoy these big buy-in events,” Seiver said. “I know there’s a lot of money on the line, but there’s actually good camaraderie. Everyone knows each other and that makes it a good atmosphere.”Here’s a look at the final results:1. Scott Seiver — $425,334 2. Daniel Alaei — $222,794 3. Jason Mercier — $141,778 4.
