AbsolutePoker.com Player Beats Poker Pro Mark Seif

‘Violentfish’ Wins $10,000 Seat to the World Series of Poker

Thursday 28th April 2005

AbsolutePoker.com has announced the victory of the first Mark Seif 'Heads-Up Shoot Out' Winner. On Friday night at AbsolutePoker.com, Violentfish - as his screen name appears - beat Mark Seif heads up. The online poker destination awarded a $10,000 seat to Violentfish, who becomes the newest member of Team Absolute to compete at this year's WSOP.

Every Saturday at 2 pm EDT leading up to the WSOP main event in Las Vegas, AbsolutePoker.com's resident pro Mark Seif takes on the AbsolutePoker.com weekly Tournament Leader Board winner. The FreeRoll prize pool starts at $1,000, and Absolute Poker adds $1,000, a custom Absolute Poker jacket, and an opportunity to win a WSOP Seat every week. Any player that beats Mark in the 'Mark Seif Heads-Up Shoot Out' will win that week's prize pool and will automatically qualify to play him again the following Friday at 9 pm EDT for a chance to win a $10,000 World Series of Poker Seat.

This past weekend Mark Seif was defeated and a new fresh face was introduced to the WSOP main event to represent Team Absolute. 'Like I've been saying all week, it's every poker player's dream to compete there (2005 WSOP),' said ex-sales executive, Violentfish, 'It wasn't easy either; Mark was down 4:1 then came back to even before it was over. In fact, it was the longest heads-up match I've ever been in; it lasted over 45 minutes. The important thing is now I know I can compete with, play with and beat the best!'

'I love this format. The calibre of players is challenging, and I have no doubt that Team Absolute will hold their own at the WSOP,' said Seif, 'I'm a pro poker player, I don't like to lose, and I'm looking forward to this Friday's match against Kevin.'
