$300 Seniors 50+ No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry) Level 5: 100/200 with a 25 ante Total Entries: 72
Seniors Event players recently returned from their first break of the day and the field continues to grow. Although it did get one shorter before the break when the previously-mentioned Neil Blumenfield was knocked out and jumped into Event 1.
SHRP regular Robert Nielsen is the early leader and joined by Patrick Maguire and Alan Phillips with the only 30K+ stacks. Phillips is looking to stay hot in SHRP tournaments after winning an RRPO event at the end of November followed by another two weeks later at the Seminole Hard Rock Tampa Winter Poker Open.
Robert Nielsen – 37,200 (186 bb) Patrick Maguire – 35,000 (175 bb) Alan Phillips – 33,075 (165 bb) Max Romano – 27,700 (139 bb) Alex Goodman – 27,450 (137 bb) Stuart Zuckerberg – 27,300 (137 bb)

With two events running in two different sections of the ballroom, players will keep everyone hopping all day long. The Seniors Event has quickly jumped up to 65 entries heading towards the first break of the day and they are building themselves a nice field.
Neil Blumenfield decided to play this event before taking his shot in Event 1, a warm-up for the 2015 WSOP November Niner. He’s a San Francisco native but we’ve been seeing him a lot sense he moved his home base to the Sunshine State.
