Only 354 players remain out of the 8,569 who entered the WSOP, and the guaranteed payout for everyone still alive at this point is nearly $35,000, with the victor taking home $10 million out of the prize pool of more than $80 million.
Seymour pulled in a total of $89.5 million during his 12-year playing career, which included seven trips to the Pro Bowl. Seymour was also quite successful on the football field, winning three Super Bowls with the Patriots. 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). The World Series of Poker Main Event is underway in Las Vegas, and Seymour is killing it. 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 ultimate victor of the event, which had a $10,000 buy-in, will win $10 million, while others in the top nine will win at least $1 million each. In 2017, he explained his motivation to ESPN's Bernard Lee. However, Richard Seymour made it surprisingly far.

Chandrayaan-2 has three modules, an Orbiter, a Lander called Vikram, and a Rover called Pragyan, which means "wisdom" in Sanskrit. On entering the Moon's sphere of influence, on-board thrusters will slow down the spacecraft for Lunar Capture.
For his efforts, Seymour earned a payday of $59,295 - the second-largest result of his poker career.
The man has done extremely well at winning money from poker over the years and has lasted decently long in WSOP Main Events in the past. Seymour is still relatively new to the professional poker scene, but he's already starting to turn heads.
