On the river, with the board showing {3-Hearts} {K-Spades} {2-Hearts} {2-Diamonds} {7-Clubs} , Wood bet out 100 and Eberle went all in. Wood folded and Eberle flashed {7-?} {9-?}.

Fluss Recovers With Big Slick

Dale Eberle raised it up from middle position to 90,000 and the action passed around to Marc Fluss in the big blind who announces he was all in. Eberle folded and Fluss flashed {A-?}{K-?} as he battles his way back from the short stack!

Agression Becoming the Name of the Game

The last three pots have been taken down by sheer agression. First on a flop of {Q-Spades} {7-Spades} {K-Hearts} , Fred Berger bet out 65,000 and then Jerry Yamachika came over the top for 325,000 more. Berger was forced to fold his hand.

Next, Dale Eberle was on the button and raised 90,000. Fred Berger then came over the top for 250,000 and Eberle folded.

It was Charles Wood's turn the next hand when he raised 150,000 preflop and took the pot down.

Looks like things are beginning to heat up a bit.

Fred Berger Doubles

Fred Berger opened with a raise from the cutoff to 150,000 and Marc Fluss made the call in the big blind.

They took a flop of {10-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{5-Spades} and Fluss asked for a count before betting enough to put Berger all in. Berger made the call and tabled {A-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} for top pair-top kicker and the lead as Fluss shows {K-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds} for no pair, no draw.

The turn bricked the {4-Hearts} and a repeat {10-Spades} on the river gave Berger a valuable double up as he goes from almost being out the door, to being right back in contention!

Wood's Supporters Out in Force

Wood's Supporters
Charles Wood has a group of folks in the audience that are here to support him on his run to this Senior's World Championship. They are all wearing t-shirts that say "Knock on Wood". Wood certainly hopes that they can bring him the little extra bit of luck needed to bring this one home.

Peter Silverstein Eliminated in 7th Place ($64,588)

Peter Silverstein - 7th Place
Peter Silverstein - 7th Place
Peter Silverstein was all in for less than the big blind. Fred Berger limped in for 40,000. Dan Lacourse raised to 160,000 and it was folded around back to Berger who folded.

Silverstein: {2-Diamonds} {4-Diamonds}
Lacourse: {A-Spades} {Q-Hearts}

A collective "oooh" came out from the crowd when the flop hit {6-Clubs} {4-Hearts} {10-Hearts}. Lacourse picked up flush draw and a straight draw on the turn when the {K-Hearts} hit. Unfortunately for Silverstein, the {J-Spades} hit the river and Silverstein becomes our 7th place finisher. He will take home $64,588 for his efforts.

Eddie Villareal Says Goodbye

Eddie Villareal has just popped into the feature table area to wish the final table good luck. Eddie finished 13th in this event and entertained everyone with his colorful antics and singing at the table as the clock ticked past 4 a.m last night. From the balcony of the Milwaukee's Best Light Bar he sung everyone a brief song as the lovable character said he had to "fly off to LA!" So long Eddie!

Peter Silverstein Crippled

Peter Silverstein moved all in preflop and was called by Fred Berger. Silverstein had Berger covered.

Silverstein: {A-Hearts} {6-Clubs}
Berger: {10-Hearts} {J-Hearts}

Board: {7-Spades} {6-Diamonds} {K-Spades} {J-Diamonds} {2-Clubs}

Berger's jacks leave Silverstein with about 35,000 chips.
