Our current chip leader is John Coleman and he kindly wrote down his name after we asked for it when noticing the big stack. Some time earlier he had already doubled up for 15,925 with on a board and it wasn't the only time he had pocket aces. Apparently that was four times already in the nine levels so far.
Simon Trumper was telling us the story of a few hands ago where he doubled up. He had raised on the button and folded to a shove from the small blind. On the next hand it was folded to him in the small blind and before he looked at his cards he warned that if it happened again he’d be calling.
He then looked down at and completed. The big blind moved all in and Trumper instantly called to see he was up against and held to double.
While we were at the table there were a few limpers and Trumper limped along. The big blind moved in for only 1,350 and with a couple of callers Trumper moved in over the top successfully isolating the all in big blind player.
Success of sorts as the big blind had woken up with and Trumper had .
No matter, the cards ran out and Trumper eliminated his man and added another 6,000 to his stack.
A total of eleven levels will be played on today's Day 1 of the Seniors Event of the WSOP 2014. After the end of level nine, a short break will take place to color up the green T25 chips and two more levels are scheduled afterwards.
