Erik would be a good choice of poker idol for a lot of young players. He goes about his business in a quiet and unassuming manner, yet with ruthless efficiency at the tables, happy to hand the spotlight to the blowhards whilst he gets on with winning 8 WSOP bracelets and a WPT title. A highly respected player amongst his peers, it is somewhat unfortunate that perhaps his highest profile moment was immortalised in the film Rounders when he walked into a Johnny Chan trap when heads up in the 1988 WSOP main event.
