Eskandari in Pole Position to Win First WSOP Bracelet in Event #59: $1,000 Super Seniors No-Limit Hold'em
Massoud Eskandari (19,000,000) leads the pack heading to Day 4 of the Event #59: $1,000 Super Seniors No-Limit Hold'em at the2022 World Series of Poker in its new home at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas. Action kicks off at 11 a.m. local time in Bally's as the final five players play down to a winner. Levels will continue to be 60 minutes and blinds will start at 100,000/200,000 with a 200,000 big blind ante.
Eskandari was practically the chip leader all day as he enjoyed his time eliminating super seniors left, right and center. He navigated the field carefully and let his opponents know when he was making big laydowns. He heads into the final day with almost 100 big blinds and is followed close behind by Jennifer Gianera (16,500,000) whose chips only went in a upward trend at the final table as she enjoyed big support from her rail. Peter Mylenki and Sharri Crawford will try to outlast each other as they go into the final day with just over 20 big blinds while James Jewell is firmly in the middle of the pack with 42 big blinds.
