Dan Lacourse Wins World Championship Seniors Event At WSOP
It was the seniors turn to shine at the World Series of Poker this past week. The women had their shot a few tournaments ago, and now it was time for the seniors to display their years of experience in Event #42, a World Championship No-Limit Hold'em Seniors tournament.
Dan Lacourse, who spent twenty seven years with the Lucas County Deputy Sheriff Department in Toledo, Ohio, was the winner of the event. Lacourse beat out some of the top players of all time in winning the event.
He won $368,832 and a World Series of Poker bracelet. Dale Eberle finished in the runner up position, winning $235,141. Marc Fluss was third taking home $156,424.
In another tournament that recently ended, Frank Gary took home the title in a Mixed Hold'em-limit/no-limit event with a $1,500 buy in. Jonathan Tamayo finished second. The pair won $219,562 and $140,093, respectively.
Eric Seidel is trying to join the growing list of pros that are winning bracelets this year. He is currently in second position as far as chip counts in a Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low Split-8 or Better event. Jon Maren has the chip lead at the final table with 377,000.
Two other tournaments that began on Wednesday are also in action, and two more will start today.
