Maybe all it takes to get Aces is the right kind of jacket. Jerry, is wearing a very appropriate for the Seminole Hard Rock jacket as it has the words “Rock n Roll” emblazoned on the sleeve – it looks like it might even be a jacket won here at the casino. The woman to his immediate right had opened the action and he moved all in. She folded, showing her A-T and he showed his Aces. “How do you get those,” a player at the table asked. It’s the jacket sir. It’s the jacket.

Ace King is on a severe losing streak in the tournament as no fewer than three Big Slick’s have been eliminated over the past 15 minutes. One player thought for sure A-K was good on the K-9-7-K board. Not so much though when your opponent has pocket 9’s. Two other Ace King’s lost races.

Nothing better than seeing someone in the Seniors Event win a pot and tell the table to “Ship It”. Apparently there is no age limit on over used poker phrases. There is also apparently no age limit at rudeness. Sitting at a table for the first time, a player tells him “welcome to the table.” The response was anything but cordial… “f*** you”. The floor was called and a penalty would have been issued if the grumpy old man didn’t go busto on the hand. Karma?

Marsha Wolak, WSOP bracelet winner, has been eliminated. There are 45 players left and the players are on a 15 minute break.
