Patriots legend Richard Seymour is turning into a dominant poker player

The World Series of Poker's main event in Las Vegas is the most prestigious poker tournament each year, with several celebrities and ex-athletes joining the fray in pursuit of the $10 million first-place prize. The seven-time pro bowler was a monster on defense during his 12 seasons in the NFL.

Every football fan knows that Richard Seymour was a beast on the field.

According to WSOP.com, Seymour had "life" late, but "a queen on the turn doomed him".

For those that don't follow professional poker playing, the World Series of Poker, or WSOP, main event is the biggest event that the poker world sees. Plus, if you make it to the top 1,286, you start to get money, so it's not only the top finishers that can make some cash. Out of 8,569 participants, only 354 remained to enter the fifth day, so the fact that Seymour is even still alive is very impressive. The victor will receive $10 million. However, Richard Seymour made it surprisingly far. In 2017, he explained his motivation to ESPN's Bernard Lee.

He told the Patriots team website a couple of years ago that he enjoys poker because it's "a game of people, situations, discipline, and I felt like I honed in on all of those skills as I played".

For his efforts, Seymour earned a payday of $59,295 - the second-largest result of his poker career. While Seymour is bursting onto the national poker scene with this performance, he isn't brand new.
