$300 Seniors 50+ No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry) Structure Level 5: 50/100 Total Entries: 157
Seniors Event players took the first break of the day as noon hit with 154 entries in the game. The field has a little work to do to catch the 190 entries from last year but they are giving it their best.
Three-time SHRP champ Francis Margaglione is the early leader after nearly quintupling his starting stack to 49,500. He has a nice little streak going at the moment with a SHRPO trophy in each of the last to series.
The first weekend is complete and it’s time to roll out some new tournaments on the schedule as we prepare for The Big 4 weekend. Today the Seniors Event kicks off bright and early, a tournament that is always a lot of fun.
Those players 50 years and up are eligible to join in this morning/afternoon for the $300 buy-in tournament. SHRP regular Marc Levy captured the title last year, his second of three titles here, and we expect him back to defend.
