The final numbers for the Seniors Event are in. There were a total of 131 entrants creating a prize pool of $22,925. The Guaranteed Prize Pool, however, was $25,000 so there is a $2,075 overlay being added. Thirteen players will make the money. Payouts are listed below. There are 97 players still with a shot at the $8,125 first place prize.
There were three limpers in the hand and the player in the small blind decided to raise the price to see the flop to 1,100, leaving himself with 3,075. Two of the limpers called and the small blind grabbed his remaining chips and was holding them out in front of his cards, arm extended, obviously prepared to place them all into the middle. The flop came Q-T-5 and he set the chips down in front of him. The dealer tossed the All In button in front of him and the first caller of the pre-flop raise announced that he was all in as well. The third player in the hand quickly folded.
The small blind turned over pocket Queens for flopped top set. “Awwwww, you gotta be kidding me,” said the other player as he turned over pocket 5’s for flopped bottom set. No one outer and the small blind more than doubled up. “Nice hand sir,” said the unfortunate player with bottom set. “Got lucky,” his opponent responded with a slight grin on his face.
There are 125 players registered with about 10 minutes left in Level 4. Registration will close shortly. Once we have final numbers and prize pool/payout information we will post them here.
The ever popular Seniors No Limit Hold ‘Em tournament is underway and we’re expecting a large field. We’re up to 109 players with about one hour left for players to register. Here are some photos taken from the tournament. See if you can spot anyone you know!
A short stacked Charlie Campos moved all in first to act with but had the misfortune of running into Paul Derosa and his pocket Aces. Campos would pick up a flush draw and a gut-shot straight draw on the turn but the river was no help and he is our 5th place finisher.
Rob Manjura moved all in first to act and was called by Mike Taylor. Manjura had and would need some help as Taylor held pocket Queens. The flop and turn kept Taylor in the lead but the King on the river would have Taylor flinging his sunglasses down on the ground and sending him to the rail in 6th place.
A short stack Mack McMackin moved all in for 89K total from the cutoff and the big blind Paul DeRosa said “I don’t like it, but I have to” and called for the additional 59K with . Mack had and was ahead until the came on the turn. McMackin finishes in 7th place for $691.
