Joshua Paige

We had three one-day tournaments on Monday and the third was a big one. The $180 Triple Stack Special drew 275 entries and Joshua Paige took the title along with $5,138 plus a seat in the $2,200 buy-in TPC Event 12 field.

The field created a prize pool worth $39,600 to nearly double the $20,000 guarantee. The last 28 players made some money with the big prizes awaiting those at the final table.

With five players remaining, they decided to evenly divide up the remaining prize pool. Paige earned the win, the trophy, and the bonus Event 12 seat courtesy of his chip lead.

Congrats Joshua and we’ll see you on Thursday for Event 12!

Wilmer Chavira

It took almost the rest of Level 16 to burst the bubble, 10 long hands getting them on the cusp of raising the blinds instead of going to dinner.

But before that could happen, Wilmer Chavira opened the action from the button and the big blind player moved all in for 55,000. Chavira called and they had to wait for the action to finish on the other two tables.

Chavira: AcJc
Big Blind: AdQh

“Everyone is cheering for the jack,” Chavira joked.

The big blind was a heavy favorite to double and it looked good after the 5h2h2c flop. He needed to fade three outs on the river (and another six for a chop) but the Jh river finished his day.

Chavira dragged the pot, the remaining 19 players were in the money, and tournament staff sent them on a 30-minute dinner break.

Seniors: Bubble Time

It took a little while to get there but the Seniors Event hit the money bubble in Level 16. Tournament staff paused the clock and they will play hand-for-hand until one player is eliminated with two minutes coming off the clock for each hand.

The 30-minute dinner break is scheduled when Level 16 comes to an end but they will play through until the bubble bursts.
