TAGs: Abe Mosseri, Adrian Apmann, Jon Andlovec, WSOP

Lee Davy brings you all the news, minus the views, on the 28th day of the 46th Annual World Series of Poker, including a Super Seniors victory for Jon Andlovec, and a few Brits looking for their second piece of gold.

WSOP Day #28: Jon Andlovec Wins the Super Seniors Event, Barny Boatman Looking for 2nd Bracelet in Extended Levels, and Matt Ashton Looking For His 2nd Poker Players Championship Title70-year old Jon Andlovec came to the 46th Annual World Series of Poker (WSOP) in the hope that he would get lucky, and earn enough money to be able to contribute to his daughter’s wedding. He has done much more than that. He returns home with $262, 220. That’s a lot of confetti.

Jon Andlovec outlasted 1,532 other players in Event #43: $1,000 Super Seniors No-Limit Hold’em. It was the first time the WSOP had held the 65+ event, and it’s proven to be a great success. Jack Effel had to make a few tweaks to the structure, namely giving the players more breaks to relieve those dodgy bladders, but in the main the players enjoyed the experience. There wasn’t a hoodie in sight.

171 places were paid a portion of the $1.3m prize pool, and the vast amount went to Andlovec. Incredibly, this was his fourth WSOP cash of his life, and all of them had been final table appearances. He defeated two-time bracelet winner, Rod Pardey, in heads-up action to end the three day experience as the victor.

Abe Mosseri Leads the Final 19 Players in the Poker Players Championships

Yesterday, we wondered if Scott Seiver could go wire-to-wire after leading both Day 1 and Day 2. That isn’t going to happen. Seiver was eliminated during the third day of action.

The man most likely to win – given that he has most of the chips – is Abe Mosseri. He also knows the path that leads the way to the final table, after coming fourth in this event last year.

Another young man who has trodden that path is Matt Ashton. The Brit is perched in second place, and aims to be only the second player to win this event twice. Michael Mizrachi won in both 2010 & 2012.

Another man to keep an eye on is Mike Gorodinsky. He is currently sitting in fifth place, and if he makes the money, it will be his fifth cash of the series, and three of those have been final tables.

Top Five Chip Counts

1st. Abe Mosseri – 1,201,000

2nd. Matthew Ashton – 1,068,000

3rd. John Racener – 1,030,000
