It was once again another record being set at the World Series Of Poker 2014 and the $1,000 Seniors Event attracted a massive field of 4,425 runners, 19 more than 2013 and more than 4,000 entries for the third year in a row. Until the dinner break, almost two third of the field was sent to the rail and five further levels down, only 486 players would bag and tag chips.
Since the top 468 spots will get paid, we start pretty much straight on the bubble with blinds at 600-1,200 and an ante of 200. The tables in the Amazon orange and purple sections are already prepared and we will be playing a total of ten levels today. Chip leader going into Day 2 is Ronald Bradway with 125,100, he is one of only three players that accumulated six digits thus far.
Other notable names that made it through are Sammy Farha (89,400), Marcia Topp (78,900), Donna Rosenthal (70,400), Simon Trumper (45,400), Barny Boatman (39,100) and Irish legend Mick McCloskey (21,200). The min cash is worth $1,752 but everybody is eying the top prize of $627,462 as well as the coveted golden bracelet and stunning Golden Eagle Trophy.
