After ten one-hour long levels on Day 2 of Event #52: $1,000 Seniors Championship there were 148 players that bagged up their chips to return on Day 3.

Leading the way was David Kluchman bagging 2,715,000. Kluchman was the beneficiary of a massive pot between himself and another chip leader Charles Walker. Walker was eliminated and Kluchman won a pot worth over 2 million chips. Kluchman’s best live cash came in 2012 when he came in 63rd in the Main Event for $128,384. He will be looking to best that cash with a win in this event as well as taking his first WSOP bracelet.

The only other stack that ended the day over two million chips was Canadian native April Facey (2,330,000). Facey has over $130,000 in lifetime earnings and this is her seventh WSOP cash. She will be searching for her first WSOP bracelet, and looking for Canada’s first bracelet of the series.

Eyes were on four-time bracelet winner Eli Elezra today, as he amassed chips throughout the day to end with 1,515,000. Elezra was playing Event #54: $2,500 Nine-Game Mix 6-Handed on the breaks and parts of the levels throughout the day. The day went well for Elezra as, during the last few levels, he never dipped below one million chips. The 2021 WSOP has been the most decorated year for multi-bracelet winners in some time, with many multi-bracelet winners winning their second, third, and fourth bracelets. Elezra looks to continue the trend in hopes to find his fifth WSOP bracelet.

Other players that bagged included Bruno Lopes (1,380,000), Timothy Little (855,000),Allen Kessler (325,000), as well as bracelet winners Barry Greenstein (810,000), Pat Lyons (745,000), Adrian Moreno (530,000), and Antonin Teisseire (470,000).

Many players came in today and played for some time, but while some made the money like Greg Raymer (710st - $1,601), Kathy Liebert (314th - $2,832), John Esposito (193rd - $3,528), and John Cernuto (176th - $3,983) most of the players were unable to find a bag for Day 3.

Day 3 will restart at 10:00 a.m. on October 30 with blinds coming back to 10,000-25,000 with a 25,000 big blind ante. The players will play ten one-hour levels with 15-minute breaks after every two levels and a 60-minute dinner break after Level 29.
