Chip Counts during the Seniors' Break

While the $250 Seniors take their time to refuel for the later levels in the tournament, we are posting the current chip counts by tables. Our three chip leaders are feeling shy or superstitious, so they have asked to not post their name or picture until they win.

With more than half the field with less than the average chip stack, the shovefest will begin shortly.

Table 3 Action

Let’s review a hand from table 3.

Preflop action has about 2,100 in the pot for antes and blinds are 1,000 and 2,000.

Seat 2 goes all-in with 8h 9h for 31,100. Blinds fold and seat 10 also goes all-in for less with Kh Ts.

Board cards: 5d Ks 2d 4s 3c

Seat 10 takes the pot with a pair of Kings leaving Seat 2 with 2,100 to work with in the next hand.

Seniors 50+ Tournament Update

As reported on Twitter a few minutes ago, registration is now closed in today’s $250 NLH Seniors 50+ 25K Guarantee event.

We had a total of 91 entrants for today’s event, but currently have 45 left contending for the 25K prize pool.

We will post the prize pool shortly.

 

Joe Sweeney (pictured far left of the dealer) is quite the versatile poker player. Joe is successful at both cash no-limit holdem and tournament play with a few impressive tournament places under his belt.

Joe placed 4th in the 2012 Spring Showdown $1,100 Main Event for a payday of $11,790. The previous year, he took 9th place in the televised NAPT $10,000 High Roller Bounty Shootout here also at Mohegan Sun.

Good Luck to everyone as the fight it out for the 25K.

Seniors Event Profiles

Action is quiet and looks like there could be a bit of an overlay in today’s Senior Event, so we will profile a few players taking the plunge in today’s tournament.

Here we see Bill Miller and Roger Palombizio have a laughable moment on Table 3.

Both competitors were last seen battling it out in the $600 Event 1 100K Guarantee.

Bill took 6th place in Event 1 to the tune of $6,149 and Roger took 24th place for $1,222.

Good Luck to both in today’s action.

Massachusetts native Joe Starratt is also capitalizing on a earlier win this week in our $300 Bounty tournament on Sunday. With many area tournaments experience under his belt, Joe is not a player to underestimate. Joe placed 4th in November 2013 here during the DeepStacks Poker Tour in the $400 NLH event.

——————————————————————————————————

Currently the Seniors’ Event is in Level 6: 200/400/50 with 76 entrants, 64 remaining. 45 minutes of late registration.
