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

Huge Pot Sends MacNaughton Into the Lead

[user38873] • Level 15: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

Greg Genge limped from under the gun, John MacNaughton raised to 8,000 and the big blind moved all in for 37,000. Genge reshoved for 150,000 as biggest stack out of the three and MacNaughton snap called. Turn over your cards please:

Big blind: {A-Spades}{6-Diamonds}
Genge: {K-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}
MacNaughton: {A-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}

"One time please," Genge said. His wish wasn't granted as the board ran out {5-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{10-Spades} and the monster pot knocked out the big blind. MacNaughton doubled up for 111,200 and he is our new chip leader. A little consolation for Genge is the fact that the beneficiary of the hand is from Alberta / Canada as well. "It's a cooler no matter what I do," he said and updated the chip count with his smart phone.

Chip Counts
John Macnaughton CA 250,000 200,200
Greg Genge CA 40,000 -110,000
