King Happy to be Ahead

GeoffFisk • Level 6: 300-600, 100 ante

Terry King was just above the starting stack with 10,900 at last count. "I'm just happy to be ahead," said King with a laugh.

King was one of the finalists for the 2018 Women in Poker Hall of Fame, and her career in poker spans more than four decades. King has worked as a poker dealer, tournament director, and floor person, and she also has a WSOP bracelet to her name, won in a seven-card stud event at the 1978 WSOP.

King's playing career is marked with consistent money finishes in stud events, and she remains a contender in the $1,500 Seven Card Stud Event.

Ringe Outpairs Geilich

GeoffFisk • Level 6: 300-600, 100 ante

Gerald Ringe: {10-}{x-}/{q-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}/{x-}
Ludovic Geilich: {9-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}/{a-Hearts}{5-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}/{x-}

Gerald Ringe and Ludovic Geilich arrived at seventh street with multiple bets in the pot, but the action slowed to a check-check on the final card.

"Nines," announced Geilich, only to hear Ringe respond with "tens." Ringe's {10-}{10-Clubs} were indeed good, and Gelich dropped down to 17,000.

Rod Pardey Sr.

Rod Pardey Sr. has been a stud specialist for more than four decades, and he's still going strong, currently sitting around the starting stack of 10,000 in the $1,500 Seven Card Stud event.

Pardey's stud prowess goes all the way back to the 1981 Amarillo Slim Super Bowl of Poker, where Pardey finished third in the $5,000 Seven Card Stud event. He has a pair of WSOP bracelets to his name, which came in 1991 and 1994, both in the $2,500 Seven Card Stud event.

Stud is a game that attracts some of the legendary characters of poker, and Pardey is about as old school as it gets. He has amassed more than $700,000 in live tournament earnings, the vast majority of those winnings coming in stud events.

His biggest cash, however, came just four years ago, at the 2015 WSOP in the $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em Super Seniors Event, where he finished second and bagged $162,100.

His son, Rod Pardey Jr., is also playing in this year's $1,500 Seven Card Stud event,

GeoffFisk • Level 5: 250-500, 50 ante
Benny Glaser
Benny Glaser

Three-time bracelet winner Benny Glaser is still above the starting stack, but his numbers just took a hit.

Benny Glaser: {x-}{x-}/{10-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}/{x-}
Opponent: {x-}{x-}/{q-Spades}{5-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{4-Spades}/{x-}

Glaser bet on fourth street, and fired another bet on fifth street, which his opponent raised. The opponent took the betting lead on the final two streets, getting called down by Glaser. Glaser mucked when he saw the {k-Clubs}{k-Spades}{q-Clubs} turned over by his opponent.
