Event #39: $1,000 Super Seniors No-Limit Hold'em

Very recently, we spoke about Howard Mash winning the Seniors Event at WSOP 2019 where the minimum age requirement is 50 years of age. Now, we had the Super Seniors tournament wrapping up, one which has a minimum age requirement of 60 years and which attracted a record-breaking playing field of 2,650 entries.

The tournament concluded with Michael Blake ending victorious and winning the top prize of $359,863 for his efforts. The player has only been a part of 3 WSOP tournaments and that is this very event in 2017, 2018 and 2019, cashing in all three and winning his maiden bracelet here as well.

Talking about whether he thought he could win this event, he said, "No I didn't, I thought Cary (Marshall) would definitely win the thing, to be honest with you. But the cards turned, and I hit some good hands and it turned out really well." Play went on to an unofficial Day 4 and Blake began with the lead, also ending as the last man standing!

Final Table Results:

  1. Michael Blake - $359,863
  2. Barry Shulman - $222,295
  3. Cary Marshall - $162,536
  4. Timothy Joseph - $119,888
  5. Rick Austin - $89,217
  6. Kanajett Hathaitham - $66,987
  7. Jeffrey Miller - $50,751
  8. Bruce Treitman - $38,802
  9. Miles Harris - $29,939

Event #41: $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship

This turned out to be a star-studded affair and honestly, one for the ages as Daniel Negreanu and John Hennigan found themselves against each other in heads-up. Considered as one of the best Seven Card Stud players, Hennigan has been a regular performer at the World Series, winning his fifth bracelet last year in the $10 H.O.R.S.E. Championship.

Here, Hennigan went on to bag his sixth gold bracelet, leaving Negreanu fuming as the latter himself has been stuck on 6 bracelets for a while. Hennigan collected the top prize of $245,451 and he's proved once again how he's one of the better players going around, also being inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame last year.

Final Table Results:

  1. John Hennigan - $245,451
  2. Daniel Negreanu - $151,700
  3. David 'ODB' Baker - $104,416
  4. Mikhail Semin - $73,810
  5. David Singer - $53,621
  6. Chris Tryba - $40,066
  7. Frank Kassela - $30,817
  8. Frankie O’Dell - $24,419
