Poker : Wsop Event 34

6/19/10 – The entry field for the $1 000 buy-in Seniors No-Limit Hold’em – event 34 – topped 3,141 this year, eclipsing the registration lists for last year, when 2,707 players entered.
"Oklahoma" Johnny Hale gave the shuffle up and deal call, prefacing it amusingly with a George Burns-esque, "I'm glad to be here today. At my age, I'm happy to be anywhere."
Tournament director Jack Effel handed over the Golden Eagle award, recognising all past champions, and the cards were soon in the air Friday afternoon.
Some 706 contestants were still going at it hammer and tongs by late Friday evening, with Kenny Milam holding the chip lead at 53,200, chased by Michael Hirschensohn  (43,000) and Tom Schneider (38,000)
