Kelley Slay – 9th Place

Following a flop of AcQh8c with about 85,000 in the pot, Lenny St. Germain checked from the big blind and Kelley Slay shoved for about 80,000 from middle position. David Albertson called from the hijack, Robert Mantin folded from the cutoff and St. Germain folded.

“Can’t fold this hand,” said Alberton, as he showed KcJc for a lot of draws.

Slay showed Qc10c for a pair of queens with an inferior flush draw.

The 4c turn and 3c river completed the board, giving Albertson the better flush to eliminate Slay in ninth place.

The board ran out Ks9d2s9s4h, giving Dreese fours full of nines to win the main pot and triple up.

Eli Levy

Taking a peek at the Seniors Event and they have practically filled up their side of the house. The 150 entries so far make it the biggest Seniors Event field since… last year’s Showdown Seniors Event when the buy-in was $300.

There are plenty of familiar faces in the game including Eli Levy who bagged up in Flight A of the Event 1 yesterday evening.

Their registration is set to close at 4:30pm and we will see if they can top the numbers from last year.
