When today started, there were 54 players at or below 7,000 in chips. That is one reason why an hour after 2:00 PM so many players were out of the running. In fact, eight tables were folded in the first 45 minutes of play. The bubble burst just before 5:00 PM when two players were gone on the same hand. This meant that they would split the money for 270th place which was $1,921. One of the players who went to the cashier's cage was Jim Meeham when his A 9 all-in move was called by another player who had pocket 7's. The board showed K J J 10 8, giving the losing end to Meeham. Jack McClelland also was sidelined when his A K was called by someone holding A J and another Jack came onto the felt. And Barbera Enright would not see WSOP bracelet number 4 in this event. Her move with pocket Queens was called by a player holding A 2, and yes another A 2 came on the flop with no Queen in sight. Plus Michael Prescott left the tables after meeting the two pair (A's and 3's) of Mike Simpson.
At the end of the day, there were 28 that would move to the last round to see who will become champion.

Day 3 -- Final Table
Here is the WSOP summary on this event:
The 2009 World Series of Poker $1,000 buy-in Senior�s No-Limit Hold�em World Champion is Michael T. Davis. Davis cashed in the Seniors World Championship last year. He finished 115th out of 2,218 entrants. Davis collected $437,358 for first place. He was also awarded his first WSOP gold bracelet. The defending champion from 2008 was Daniel Lacourse. He entered this year�s event, but did not cash. To be eligible for entry into the Seniors No-Limit Hold�em world championship, the entrant must be age 50 or older -- which means the player had to have been born prior to June 22, 1959.
The tournament was played over three consecutive days. Due to the field size, Day Three was expected to run very long. But the final table lasted a reasonable six hours. Michael T. Davis won his victory in a very quiet manner. He never held the chip lead until about 15 minutes prior to victory. He won a series of late key pots which gave him the victory.
The final hand came when both Davis and Buller went all-in preflop. Davis turned over A 9 with Buller having A J on his side. The flop was 3 4 5, turn card a 9 pairing Davis's card and the river was a 4. So Davis with two pair (9's and 4's) won his first gold WSOP bracelet and the right for young girls to call him champion.
