Many become analysts on ESPN or NFL Network, others move out to the countryside and live quietly, but for former Oakland Raider Richard Seymour, that's not what he had in mind.

From Florida to the Bahamas, Seymour has raked in plenty of cash, but none of his performances have been as impressive as his most-recent outing at the World Series of Poker.

Seymour peaked early in the day with about 3.6 million chips and spent a brief stretch playing with another National Football League alumnus, former Detroit Lion Eric Stocz.

Seymour's run marks the best finish by any NFL, NBA, NHL or Major League Baseball player in the World Series of Poker main event's history. Seymour went into Tuesday with 2.5 million and was able to add 150,000 to his chip total over the course of the day.

If Seymour could have made it to the final table, not only would he have had a chance to take home a diamond bracelet, but he'd also have a shot at winning the $10 million in prize money that will be handed out to the victor of the main event.

For his efforts, Seymour earned a payday of $59,295 - the second-largest result of his poker career.

This year's WSOP main event, a no-limit Texas hold 'em style tournament, had a total of 8,569 entries. According to Cardplayer.com he's won $575,448 in casino events and $147,851 on the World Poker Tour.
