We caught up with chip leader Harvey Bundy to see if his incredible rush from earlier in the day had continued. According to Bundy, the streak of made hands and victims willing to ship their stacks dissipated after the dinner break, but he has managed to continue accumulating chips anyway.
When asked to explain his run through this record setting field of 3,752 players, Bundy told us that he gained valuable experience playing in Event # 4 of this years WSOP, the $5,000 No Limit Hold'em tournament. Bundy said that for a good part of Day 1, he had eventual champion Allen Bari sitting on his left, as well as Justin Young and Eric Baldwin.
Bundy went on to explain that the $5,000 event provided "an entirely different style of tournament than the seniors event." When asked to elaborate, Bundy told us that in the open events, dominated as they are by young internet players, "the emphasis is mostly on post-flop play" and that "he learned some valuable lessons playing with the internet kids."
Harvey Bundy has successfully applied those lessons here in the Senior's Championship. Given his ability to utilize advanced strategies against his more traditional opponents, it is safe to assume this chip leader will remain a force to be reckoned with as we head to the final day.
