Event #30: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold’em Championship

Time to Crown a New Champion?

Craig Koch - our current chip leader with 915,000 in chips.

Welcome back to Day 3 of Event #30: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold’em Championship. So far we've managed to dwindle our record-setting Day 1 registrants down to just 37 after two long and hard-fought days of No-Limit Hold'em poker. Of these remaining 37, it is Craig Koch who leads the pack with a massive 915,000 in chips - just over three times the current average stack.

Joining Koch are fellow big stacks Gregory Alston (624,000), Bruce Baker (573,000) and Richard Harwood (549,000). We will also be keeping an eye on Jack Ward, who placed seventh in last years Seniors Championship and enters Day 3 with 488,000.

Play is scheduled to resume at 3:00 p.m. PDT, however, this is contingent on enough tables (from other events) breaking so there is sufficient space to fit our remaining seniors. Our objective is to crown a winner, however, as per the new rules of the WSOP, if 10 levels pass and a winner has not been named, we will return for a fourth day where the remaining players can duke it out until just one is left standing.
