Siegel's Got You Covered

Event 7 (Flight A)
Level 13 (800/1,600/200)
Total Entries: 216
Players Remaining: 77
Chip Average: 56,000
Eric Siegel (Dix Hills, NY)
One of the more recognizable notable players at a handful of Northeast and Mid-Atlantic Poker Rooms is Eric Siegel (Dix Hills, NY) and not only because of his extensive tournament resume, but also for what he's done in terms of marketing and growing the game throughout not only the East Coast, but throughout the world.

Siegel is the Director of Marketing and Player Development for Poker Players International, a poker marketing agency that works with some of the world's best players and biggest tournament series, while increasing the over experience of poker for all players. Ultimately, their goal is to improve the poker industry in every respect.

Seigel and PPI were also some of the first people to bring "live reporting" and "live blogs" to these East Coast poker rooms, giving both the rooms and players an added marketing reach and nearly unlimited growth potential.

They do much more than just promote the game of poker though, as they also have been the brains behind some of the most successful charity effort in poker, heading Poker Gives, Bad Beat On Cancer and All-In For A Cure, which combined have raised millions of dollars to help people and families battling life threatening illnesses and hardships.

Siegel and the people of PPI clearly know what they're doing off the felt, but Siegel knows what he's doing on it as well, as he has close to $500,000 in career tournament earnings, with two Foxwoods titles to his name, as well as multiple titles from other casinos, including a WSOP Circuit victory from 2010.

Siegel and the rest of the Event 7 Flight A field are now on their final break before they bag and tag chips at the end of Level 15 and regardless of whether Siegel is able to bag up and advance to tomorrow's Day 2, he and PPI will certainly be on our watch as they continue to grow and market the game of poker.
