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

Luck Springs Eternal

• Level 13: 800-1,600, 200 ante

Charles “Chuck” Gassner open shoved his last 21,000 and got a call. “Do we flip ‘em up now?” he asked the dealer. Once the count was done he was given the nod and showed {10-Hearts}{7-Hearts}. He had to beat the {a-Hearts}{7-Spades} of his opponent.

The cards ran out {j-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{2-Spades}{8-Hearts}. As the last card fell Chuck clapped his hands and cried “Straight.”

“Amazing.” said another player.

“Luck springs eternal.” grinned Chuck.

“Don’t you mean hope?” came the reply.
