The remaining 1,108 players from Day 1a and 1b will convene tomorrow at 10 a.m. and play ten more hour-long levels, which will resume at level 12 (1,000/2,500 blinds with a 2,500 big blind ante).

Lucky Lady Spares Wolak

Nível 8 : 500/1,000, 1,000 ante
Marsha Wolak
Marsha Wolak

A player in early position raised to 3,200 and was called by Marsha Wolak on the button and the player in the small blind.

The flop came {9-Hearts}{6-Spades}{4-Clubs} and it was checked to the original raiser, who continued for 3,200. Wolak raised to 9,000 and action folded back to the original bettor, who raised enough to put Wolak all in for her last 36,000.

Wolak tanked for some time before deciding to commit her chips with a call.

Marsha Wolak: {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs}
Early-position player: {9-Clubs}{9-Spades}

It was a worst-case scenario for Wolak, who had run into top set.

The {7-Hearts} turn changed nothing; however, the {q-Spades} river sent the table into an uproar as it provided Wolak with a superior set — good for the double up.

"Oh my God, I need a beer now," Wolak said. "That's crazy."

Two All Ins at the "Chocolate" Table

Nível 7 : 400/800, 800 ante
Tom Vrana
Tom Vrana

Tom Vrana was already all in when Randall Shioi and Tony Wise built a side pot on a board of {7-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}. Shioi bet 6,000 from the button and Wise called from the big blind.

The river came the {7-Clubs} and Wise pushed all in for around 50,000. Shioi thought about it for a moment before folding. Wise confidently turned over {8-Spades}{7-Spades} for rivered trips to win the side pot, but Vrana had {a-Hearts}{7-Hearts} to triple up.

Shioi's box of chocolates that he shared with the table earlier is now empty and he walked over to throw it in the trash bin.

Roland Israelashvili
Roland Israelashvili

Roland Israelashvili got all his chips in the middle before the flop and was at risk for 22,100.

Roland Israelashvili: {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}
Opponent: {j-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}

Israelashvili ran into a bigger pair but the flop came {a-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{4-Hearts}, giving him a set. He was able to dodge the jack when the board completed with the {6-Clubs} on the turn and the {q-Clubs} on the river.

"It's a table to get it in behind," Isrealashvili joked as he went for break.

Rojanavongse Wins Four-Way All In

Nível 6 : 300/600, 600 ante
Ott Rojanavongse
Ott Rojanavongse

Four players, including Ott Rojanavongse and Aquil Salahudeen, saw the turn on a board of {a-Spades}{j-Clubs}{5-Spades}{5-Clubs}. Salahudeen bet 7,000 from the small blind, the big blind moved all in for around 18,000, a player in early position also went all in, and the decision was on Rojanavongse.

After thinking for a few minutes, Rojanavongse called the bets, having all three players covered. Salahudeen also called all in for his remaining chips.

Aquil Salahudeen: {9-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}
Big Blind: {q-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}
Early Position: {k-Diamonds}{k-Spades}
Ott Rojanavongse: {q-Spades}{8-Spades}

Two players had made trip fives, while Rojanavongse was on a flush draw. The {4-Spades} on the river completed Rojanavongse's flush to send all three opponents to the exit.

"Yes," he yelled as he shot up from his seat and pumped his fist after seeing the spade on the river.

Defending champion Howard Mash was heads-up on a {a-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{j-Hearts} flop and faced a bet of 4,000 from the hijack. He called from middle position and saw the {5-Hearts} fall on the turn.

Mash checked to his opponent, who bet out 6,000. Mash responded by shoving his entire stack, around 20,000, in the middle.

His opponent let out a frustrated sigh before folding as Mash showed the {a-Diamonds} while raking in the pot.

Welcome to Day 1b of Event #52: $1,000 Seniors Championship

Tim Killday finished Day 1a second in chips

Wednesday's Day 1a saw a total of 2,432 players enter Event #52: $1,000 Seniors Championship with just 486 making the cut for Friday's Day 2. Today's Day 1b action welcomes a new field of players that will be filled with plenty of familiar faces.

George Bronstein finished yesterday’s play with the chip lead at 585,000, followed close behind by Tim Killday with 433,000 and “Miami" John Cernuto at 355,500. Others to survive the day included Twitch streamer Deborah Vanneste (196,000), Poker Hall of Famer Jack McClelland (175,000), and former Main Event champion Greg Raymer (170,500).

Another massive field will try to replicate that feat when play begins at 10 a.m. PT on Thursday. Like yesterday, they'll begin with 20,000 chips and will play 11 hour-long levels. Late registration is open until the end of the dinner break, which follows Level 8 which is projected to be around 8:15 p.m.

Plenty of notables fell during the 11 hours of play on Day 1a, including defending champion Howard Mash, Tom McEvoy, Matt Glantz, Barry Greenstein, and Dan Heimiller. However, their tournament isn’t necessarily over; anyone who busted yesterday can re-enter today.

It will be another day of action as the over-50 club takes over the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino, and PokerNews will be on hand providing all the live updates and chip counts as the field attempts to navigate their way through to Day 2.
