Early Aces Over Kings All-In

Nível 1 : 100/100, 100 ante

Russ Beyer earned a quick double up in the tournament after he got his stack in preflop with {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs} versus his opponent's {k-Clubs}{k-Spades}.

Beyer's aces held on the {7-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{a-Spades}{6-Spades}{9-Hearts} runout and a quick boost to his stack has started his tournament on the right foot.

Positive Vibes in the Pavilion

Nível 1 : 100/100, 100 ante

This tournament has a different kind of feel to it, with the players seemingly enjoying themselves more than expected, even for the senior's event.

From the helpful tip from one player to another regarding the big blind ante, to the wife on the rail who is ".... trying to send positive vibes to my husband from here." The atmosphere has more of a team-like feel to it, rather than thousands of individuals each vying for one single first-place prize.

What a breath of fresh air to an already spectacular event.

The five-day Event #52: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold'em Championship begins today at 10 a.m. Every year, thousands of players convene in Las Vegas for this over 50’s event.

Day 1a will start at 10:00 a.m. and there will be 11 levels of 60 minutes each with a starting stack of 20,000. Late registration is allowed till the end of level 8 approximately 8:15 p.m. One re-entry is allowed and there will be a 75-minute break after level 8 approximately at 7:00 p.m.

The defending 2019 champion Howard Mash saw off international competition from a 5,916-strong field to take the Seniors’ bracelet and $662,594. Mash, a financial advisor from Florida, had taken the chip lead all the way back in Day 2, and kept a vice-like grip on it that only slipped briefly during the mid-stages of play to take down his first WSOP bracelet.

As George Bernard Shaw - and Doyle Brunson - famously said, “We don’t stop playing because we grow old. We grow old because we stop playing,” and no one can accuse Senior runners of the latter.

As always the PokerNews team will be on hand to report all the action from when the first card is dealt until the last card hits the felt.
