William Vo
William Vo

From 124 starting, the Seniors field is down to 18 and in the money. It took a few rounds of hand-for-hand play, but William Vo took control picking up AhJc and busting the KhQh of an unknown opponent. The pair got the money in preflop and Vo spiked an ace to guarantee the remaining 18 players a payday.

As he was quick to point out, Vo is no stranger to deep tournament runs. He finished 5th in last August’s WPT Legends of Poker Main Event for more than $113,000.
