Emerson Ward

With about 32,000 in the pot and the board reading 7h6h3s, Emerson Ward checked from the big blind and Vitor Coelho bet 10,000 from middle position. Ward check-raised all in for 89,000 and Coelho thought for a minute before he called.

Coelho: 9d9s
Ward: 7d4d

Ward flopped top pair with a gunshot draw but was behind the over pair nines of Coelho. The Ad turn and Js river finished the board to send our Seniors Event champ out early in Day 2.

Vitor Coelho – 515,000 (103 bb)
Emerson Ward – Eliminated in 491st Place ($525)
