Event #30: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold’em Championship

Misstep for Magriel Is Ward's Gain

Jack Ward raised to 32,000 in the cutoff and Paul Magriel tanked for a a short while on the button. He stood out of his chair several times to get a good look at Ward's stack. Finally, he put in a hefty raise to 120,000. The blinds got out of the way and Ward called, leaving himself 9,500 behind.

The flop came down {J-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{9-Spades} and Ward put in his last 9,500, sending Magriel into the tank for a good while before ultimately calling with {K-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}. Ward tabled {A-Spades}{J-Hearts} and appeared well on his way to double up, but the {K-Clubs} hit the turn and gave Magriel two outs to win. However, the {3-Spades} river was not one of them and Ward found the crucial double.
