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.

Five More Hands

LiamGannon • Level 21: 10,000-25,000, 25,000 ante

The floor has announced five more hands of the night.

Elliott Has One Wish for Day 3

dsalituro • Level 21: 10,000-25,000, 25,000 ante

Doyle Elliott and Edward "Texas" Zidd are seated next to each other on Table #112 and have been exchanging friendly barbs.

"If we're sitting next to each other tomorrow, I quit," Elliott joked as the rest of the table burst out laughing.

In his last hand, Elliott raised pre-flop and everyone folded. "I should've called you," Zidd said. "Keep you honest."

Elezra Folds Out Jacks

LiamGannon • Level 21: 10,000-25,000, 25,000 ante

A player raised on the button to 45,000 and in the big blind, Eli Elezra raised to 700,000 and his opponent went into the tank. He thought about it for roughly a minute and then folded {j-Hearts}{j-Spades} face up before the flop. He told Elezra nice hand as Elezra silently took in the pot.

Bigelow Picks Up Aces Versus Kings

dsalituro • Level 21: 10,000-25,000, 25,000 ante

Russ Louwagie found himself all in for around 400,000 pre-flop and was called by Pete Bigelow.

Russ Louwagie: {k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}
Pete Bigelow: {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}

It was the classic cooler right at the end of the night, and Louwagie didn't get any help on the {9-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{q-Clubs} board. He hit the payout line shortly before players bagged up for the night, while Bigelow stacked up more than 1,000,000.

The board ran out {7-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{7-Spades}{a-Clubs}{10-Hearts} giving Goodman a full house, sevens over aces for a nice double up.
