The Seniors Event more than doubled in size by the time they hit the first break and crossed over 100 entrants when they returned to their seats.

Marsha Wolak is among the crowd today and trying to earn her fifth career title. The four she has are impressive on their own. She owns a WSOP Circuit ring and an SHRP Seniors Event title from the 2015 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown, but Wolak hit her biggest score (and “trophy”) when she captured the WSOP Ladies Championship bracelet in 2011.

Event 3: Kessler Among Growing Field

Seniors Event players are having a good time, plenty of laughs between hands with some needles flying. The only joking complaint was the tournament location.

“Why did you put us back in the corner!” one player laughed with tournament staff. “That’s a long walk for us old guys.”

The entrant count matched the age requirement soon after the start including Jeff Kessler trying for another title in this event. It’s been a while (he had to check with us for the exact year) but he earned the Seminole Hard Rock “Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open” title back in the glory days of 2013 when the series was held in the Poker Room.

Event 3: Friday Morning Seniors

$300 Seniors 50+ No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)

You have to get up pretty early to play in the Seniors Event and you have to be 50 years old as well. Event 3 has a 10am start time in the ballroom and we expect a nice crowd for a little morning poker fun.

The Seniors Event is always a good time and it will keep the room hopping.

They will play 30-minute levels all day long with late registration and unlimited re-entries open until the start of Level 9 at 2:30pm. This is a one-day tournament and we’ll find our second champion of the series before the night is complete.
