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

Early Double Up for Williams

• Level 11: 500-1,000, 100 ante

A player in middle position opened for 2,900 and Shirley Williams pushed her remaining 5,800 into the middle a couple seats to his left. Everyone else folded and Williams' opponent called.

Williams: {Q-Clubs}{Q-Spades}
Opponent: {9-Diamonds}{9-Spades}

The {10-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} flop looked good for Williams, but we could see her tense up a little when a {8-Diamonds} fell on the turn, giving her opponent an open-ender. However, the river bricked a {4-Hearts} and Williams exhaled a sigh of relief.

Williams is still very short with 12,000, but we will continue to keep an eye on her to see if she can make a run at following in her son's footsteps and earning a WSOP gold bracelet.
