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

Donarski and Sperberg Out within 30 Seconds of Each Other

• Level 29: 50,000-100,000, 100,000 ante

Richard Sperberg's last hand saw him all in preflop with a dominated ace for just over a million chips (now ten big blinds). His {a-Clubs}{10-Hearts} couldn't hit anything to improve over Dane Nielsen's {a-Hearts}{q-Spades} on the {5-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} board.

Almost immediately after Sperberg's exit, Kenneth Donarski moved in for six big blinds with {a-Clubs}{3-Clubs}. Sole remaining Brit in the field Ali Zihni gave him a spin with the {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs}. His suit might not have been live, but his cards were, and he hit one of them to take the pot and another scalp.
