A player in the lojack limped and Jerry Zehr raised to 1,200 from the hijack. Both players in the blinds called, as did the original limper.

The flop came {a-Clubs}{5-Spades}{7-Spades} and action checked to Zehr, who continued for 2,300. The player in the big blind and lojack called.

It was checked to Zehr again on the {4-Hearts} turn and he bet 3,100. This time, only the player in the lojack called.

The {5-Hearts} completed the board and both players checked. Zehr tabled {a-Spades}{9-Hearts} and his opponent mucked — awarding the sizable pot to Zehr.

Zehr, a former minister, has been playing poker for over 20 years and hopes to shed the stigma associated with responsible gambling and Christianity.

"There is a stigma about poker that it's a sin," Zehr said. "I just don't think that's true. Jesus was about love and non-judgement."

Zehr is playing in his fourth WSOP Senior's Event and will be looking to make a deep run with his newly acquired chips.
