The remaining players are on a 60-minute dinner break.
We mentioned Harvey Bundy's towering castle of chips in an earlier post believing that he had one of the biggest stacks in the room with 180,000. During the last twenty minutes of play, however, Bundy has gone on an absolute tear, adding more than 100,000 to his Day 2 haul.
On the last hand before the dinner break, an opponent moved all-in for his last 45,000 or so chips and Bundy insta-called with . The other player had and Bundy was in his usual position of having his opponent crushed. The door card was a third jack and his opponent was drawing dead from the start, and Bundy later told us that this current run of good luck is "the hottest run of anybody's life."
Hopefully for Bundy the dinner break will not halt his momentum and we will keep you updated to see if he can carry this massive chip lead to the final day of play.
We have one table here at the Seniors Championship which seems to be drawing the biggest stacks in the room. A count showed that over 670,000 chips are in play at Table # 368, with three players owning a staggering 400,000 between them.
Harvey Bundy is currently lording over a stack of 180,000 and according to him, he is riding the rush of a lifetime. Bundy told us that he had just 30,000 chips only thirty minutes ago, and that after taking his new seat at Table # 368, he has simply been hit with the hit deck.
We Bundy felting yet another opponent with his on a board reading . His opponent moved all-in on a flush draw holding the , and Bundy faded aces, sixes and diamonds to drag 30,000 or so chips in his direction.
Ralph Crow also has a monster stack, with more than 140,000 chips at his disposal, while Gregory Sellgren has amassed nearly 80,000.
We will be sure to keep an eye on these super stacks as Day 2 marches onward, to see if any major confrontations occur between the tournaments chip leaders.
Two players limped in, allowing Susie Isaacs to check from the big blind with .
The flop fell and Isaacs checked. Limper #1 checked, Limper #2 bet 2,000, and Isaacs popped it to 10,000. Only Limper #2 came along to see the turn. Isaacs bet 8,500 and was called immediately, landing the on the river. They both checked and upon seeing her opponent table , Isaacs was happy to show her full house to win the pot.
We caught up with Day 1 chip leader John Bovin as he attempted to pad his chip stack. Bovin raised to 7,000 from under-the-gun and it folded arounf to the player in the hijack, who reraised all-in for his last 13,700.
Bovin made the call and flipped up , but found himself dominated by the held by his opponent. The final board rolled out and despite making trip aces, Bovin lost the pot to drop under 65,000 for the day.
We caught the aftermath of a truly horrendous bad beat at Table # 367. The dealer quietly waved us over to report that one player had flopped a set with his on a flop of . Another player pushed all-in with his was drawing extremely thin with his top pair, top kicker.
The player had gone runner-runner to make a full house and the man holding a set of fours was crushed by the defeat.
