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

Record-Setting Field For Day 1

• Level 3: 50-100, 0 ante

Tournament Director Jack Effel just made an announcement that is sure to be a source of pride for every senior who made the journey to Las Vegas for this WSOP Seniors Championship.

With more than 3,700 entrants for this Day 1, a number which is sure to grow even higher with registration still open, today marks what Effel called "the largest single-day opening field in the history of the World Series of Poker, and perhaps in of the game itself." For the eventual champion of this event, knowing that they successfully navigated a record-setting field will be almost as sweet as the gold bracelet.
