The first day of the 2022 World Series of Poker Event #47: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold'em Championship begins today at 10 a.m. local time at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas.

Last October, Robert McMillan overcame a field of 5,404 entries to claim the biggest win in his career for $561,060 and a WSOP gold bracelet. He defeated Robert Davis heads up with Daniel Stebbins finishing in third place to get to a podium filled with players from Arizona.

Every year, the turnout for this event is huge and with seats being assigned to tables spread out over the Paris and Bally's ballrooms, the expectation is that this year, things won't be any different. With 5,918 entries in 2018 and attendance records being broken, who can predict what this year will bring?

Eleven levels of 60-minutes each are scheduled on Day 1a with a 20-minute break after every two levels. A 75-minute dinner break is scheduled at the end of Level 8, (around 7 p.m.). Late registration will be possible until the end of the dinner break (around 8.15 p.m.).

Players must be at least 50 years of age and can reenter once per starting day. All players who enter will get 20,000 chips in their stack to use to their best abilities. Day 1b on Thursday will follow the exact same structure as Day 1a with all surviving players coming together for Day 2 on Friday, June 24 at 10 a.m. local time.

The PokerNews live reporting team will be on hand to bring you all the action to see who will be taking this down at the end of the road.

The details of this hand were provided to PokerNews by defending champion Robert McMillan after the fact.

Before the start of the tournament, tournament directors invited McMillan on stage in Paris to say a few words to the field of competitors. After a playful "You're all playing for second place," and giving the directions to shuffle up and deal, McMillan returned to his seat.

He woke up with pocket kings on his first hand, and put in a raise. He got one caller, Glenn Taylor. The flop put two clubs on the board, and McMillan, with the {k-Clubs}, fired again, and Taylor made another call. The turn put a third club on the board. McMillan moved all in, this time, Taylor made the laydown. It was then revealed that Taylor had laid down the same hand that McMillan had, pocket kings, albeit without McMillan's flush draw.

The defending champ scooped the big early pot, helping his run at defending his title.

Ten Minutes, Three All In, One Player Out

Nível 1 : 100/100, 100 ante

Action was caught on the turn of a {10-Spades}{7-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{j-Spades} board, with three players in the hand.

Navin Enand led for 2,500 in early position and he was raised to 5,000 by Andre Templeman in middle position. A third player in the hand called from the big blind.

When action was back on Enand, he just announced "all in". Templeman also called all in, and the third player had a decision. He finally made the call for all of his chips.

Third player: {q-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}
Andre Templeman: {10-Clubs}{8-Spades}
Navin Enand: {8-Clubs}{6-Clubs}

With the made straight for Enand and Templeman, the last player was just drawing to a higher straight. But the river {10-Hearts} was not the card he was looking for and he was eliminated.

Turgeon Flops a Straight

Nível 1 : 100/100, 100 ante

Three way action was picked up on the flop with 1,800 in the pot and a board of {q-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{j-Diamonds}. The big blind led out for 1,000, got a call from the button, then Richard Turgeon raised to 2,000 from the small blind. Both opponents called.

On the {j-Spades} turn, Turgeon fired 1,500 and the big blind put in a raise to 5,000. The button got out of the way before Turgeon made the call.

Turgeon checked the {4-Hearts} river and his opponent fired another 5,000. Turgeon made the call. His opponent showed {a-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} for trip jacks, but Turgeon turned over {a-Clubs}{k-Spades} for the Broadway straight. Turgeon scooped the pot to build one of the bigger stacks in the room in these early stages of Day 1a.

Thalmann Gets Paid with Set

Nível 1 : 100/100, 100 ante

The heads-up action was picked up on the river with 7,000 in the middle and a board of {j-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{k-Spades}{5-Hearts}{8-Spades}.

Yves Thalmann fired for 6,000 from the button. His opponent, in early position, tanked for a few minutes. Eventually, he made the call, seeming to regret it before even putting the chips in, telling Thalmann "come get it."

Thalmann turned over {a-Spades}{j-Spades}, good for a set of jacks. His opponent promptly mucked his hand while Thalman scooped the pot worth nearly an entire starting stack.

Cantu Got Full Value With Aces

Nível 1 : 100/100, 100 ante

First to act, John Cantu raised it to 700. Everybody folded to the player in the big blind, who raised it to 2,300. Cantu made it to 7,000 and his opponent just called.

On the {k-Spades}{5-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} flop, the player in the big blind announced all in and Cantu called.

Opponent: {9-Spades}{9-Diamonds}
John Cantu: {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}

The turn {4-Spades} and river {10-Hearts} didn't change anything and Cantu's pocket aces were good to eliminate a player.

"I was raising a lot before the flop, I think he just didn't believe me," said Cantu, who has already tripled his starting stack.
