Event #32: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold'em Championship

The Big 50

GeoffFisk • Level 1: 100-100, 0 ante

Thousands of grinders meeting the minimum age requirement of 50 years old have packed the Rio Convention Center for what could be the biggest WSOP seniors event of all time.

Registration is already over the 4,400 players mark, and late registration runs until the end of Level 8, so there's still about 10 hours left for the field to get even bigger. The cavernous Pavilion Room is entirely filled with players for this event, the Brasilia and Miranda rooms are at capacity, and most of the tables in the Amazon Room are currently dedicated to the seniors.

With all players eligible for one re-entry, the 2019 Seniors No-Limit event is on pace to break last year's all-time record of
5,919 entries. The 2018 champion, Matthew Davis, took home a $662,983 first-place prize, and that total could very well be even bigger when this year's champion is determined.
