Event #17: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Tough Being a Champ

• Level 7: 150-300, 25 ante

The winner of this year’s Casino Employees event, Roland Reparejo, is wearing his WSOP Gold Bracelet at the table but from the last few hands we saw him play he may as well have worn a target on his chest.

Reparejo opened from the cut-off for 750 and faced a raise to 2,775. The blinds folded and Reparejo at least gave it some thought before folding. On the next hand he again opened for 750 and it was looking promising until the small blind went in the tank before announcing that he was all in for nearly 9,000. Reparejo didn’t look happy and folded {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} face up. His opponent kept his cards to himself.
