Event 17 in the World Cup of Cards hosted at Playground Poker Club was reserved for players of 50 years and up, as it was a $200 + $20 Seniors’ NL Hold’em Event.
115 players stormed the tournament hall in anticipation of becoming the Seniors’ Event Champion, and this created a prize pool of $22,310.00. The winner was scheduled to take home almost $5.5K, however a deal occurred amongst the final 8 players where the prize pool was distributed according to the stack sizes of the players.
Play became fast and furious following the deal, as only a small portion of the prize pool was reserved for the eventual winner. Even heads-up play between Allan David Petitclerc and Malcom Harold Fraser lasted all of two hands, as Allan c-bet his stack after opening preflop, and Malcom called with middle pair. The turn and river brought no change, and with that pot Malcom was crowned Event 17 champion.
Seniors’ Event Champion: Malcom Harold Fraser – $3,345.000
Seniors’ Event Runner-Up: Allan David Petitclerc – $3,230.00
