Wsop Event 30 Final Results

Tuesday June 21,2011 : Event 30: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold'em Championship produced another bracelet when California talent manager James Hess (50) took the tournament at the end of three hectic days that saw a field of 3,752 reduced to only 37 players at the start of the third day.
Playing aggressively through the day and the survivors to a victory at level 30, Hess claimed the chip lead halfway through the final table and managed to maintain it, eliminating five final tablers and then powering through a short heads up with Richard Harwood, a television director and fellow Californian.
A regular WSOP contestant, Hess at age 50 yrs becomes the youngest Senior's player ever to win the event, claiming a bracelet and the main prize of $557,432. Harwood's second placing carried with it a check for $342,407
