Event #17: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Waiting for Aces

• Level 6: 100-200, 25 ante

Simon “Aces” Trumper won Late Night Poker way back in Series 2 and although he may have left the life of a professional poker player far behind he is still heavily involved in poker as the tournament director of Dusk ‘Till Dawn, the largest dedicated poker room in Europe.

He is just above starting stack and was marginally involved in a hand we just witnessed. It stared with a limp from first position which got three callers before Trumper completed the small blind and the big blind checked their option.
The flop was {j-Spades}{2-Spades}{k-Diamonds}. The original limper checked and there was a bet of 1,100 and a call. Trumper and the big blind got out of the way but the under the gun player moved all in. It took a moment to make the decision but the player who led the flop made the call with {k-Spades}{q-Clubs}.

Good call as he was up against the {k-Hearts}{10-Hearts}. The turn {4-Clubs} and river {9-Hearts} saw a nice double up.
