Jorgensen Wins Four-Way Pot with a Pair of Deuces

blaisebourgeois • Level 12: 1,000-2,500, 2,500 ante

The under-the-gun player opened to 6,000. An early position and middle position both called and Theo Jorgensen came along from the big blind.

The flop came {7-Clubs}{2-Spades}{6-Diamonds} and all four players tapped the table.

On the {4-Clubs} turn, the player under the gun put out a bet of 8,000 and only Jorgensen called.

The {10-Clubs} river put a backdoor flush draw and another straight draw on the board, enough to slow both players down and have them check.

Jorgensen turned over {j-Clubs}{2-Hearts}, much to the disgust of the original raiser, who scoffed as he tossed his cards into the muck.

Whitesell's Jacks Hold

mattohalloran • Level 12: 1,000-2,500, 2,500 ante

Action was picked up following a jam and a call between Rick Whitesell and the cutoff. Whitesell had the big stack, and the two were off to the races.

Opponent: {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}
Rick Whitesell: {j-Hearts}{j-Clubs}

With Whitesell ahead, the {8-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{9-Spades}{8-Hearts} runout did nothing to help his opponent's hand, and Whitesell collected the pot and a quick knockout early in Day 2, as his opponent headed for the rail.

"Ace-king's no good," he commented to the player to his right, "but I'm never folding there," before getting up and leaving the table.

After an exciting two days of starting flights, Day 2 of Event #47: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold'em Championship is slated for a 10 a.m. local time restart at the 2022 World Series of Poker at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas.

This year's tournament has set records for the senior event, with 7,188 total entries between the two flights, generating a prize pool of $6,397,320. The final senior standing will take home the first place cash of $694,909 and the precious WSOP gold bracelet. 1,079 seniors will make the money, taking home a minimum cash of $1,600.

Of those 7,188 entries, 1,439 managed to bag chips heading into Day 2. American James Kennedy leads the way with the biggest stack at 452,000. He'll hope to continue his success from Day 1a in pursuit of the first bracelet of his career. Fellow American Ken O'Malley came away with the largest stack of Day 1b participants, at 363,500. O'Malley is in pursuit of not just his first career bracelet, but his first career cash in a WSOP event.

There are plenty of notable names returning for Day 2 as well. Women in Poker Hall of Famer Allyn Shulman will start the day with the fourth-biggest stack (361,500). Fellow Women in Poker Hall of Famers Kathy Liebert (225,000) and JJ Liu (175,500) will be returning to play as well. Seven-time bracelet winner Men Nguyen (83,000), as will six-time bracelet holder Jeff Lisandro (144,000). The defending champion Robert McMillan failed to bag on Day 1a, but returned to play the second starting flight, where he bagged his end of day stack of 115,500.

Play today will consist of 10 60-minute levels. They will begin at Level 12, consisting of blinds of 1,000/2,500 with a 2,500 big blind ante. A 15-minute break is scheduled for after every second level, with a 60-minute dinner break to be held after Level 19, expected to be around 7 p.m. local time. Those fortunate enough to survive Day 2 will return for Day 3, which will follow the same structure.
