Event 43 – the $1 000 buy-in Seniors No Limit Hold ‘Em World Championship predictably attracted a massive field of 2 707 entrants, generating a prize pool of $2 463 700.
The event culminated in a final table comprised of Barry Bounds, Dan DeLatorre, Robert Beck, Michael Morusty, Richard McCall, Art Duncan, Charles Simon, Michael Davis and Scott Buller, and although he was one of the lower stacks at the start Michael Davis was the last man standing after playing smart, often low-profile poker but gaining ground steadily.

Davis entered the short but exciting heads up with Scott Buller, who had earlier looked like the man who would prevail and started heads up play with the chip lead. But in the last quarter hour of heads up play it was Davis who took the lead and called the shots to win the game.
Davis, who told reporters that he had just sold his business, picked up a check for $437 358 and a bracelet for his time and trouble, leaving Buller with a second place payday of $268 507.
