The Mike Sica Memorial Seniors Event has been cruising along all day and they wasted no time getting into the money. The money bubble rolled around when a player open/shoved from the button for 25,000 and David Hausmann called in the big blind.
Hausmann was ahead and the board ran clean to send Hausmann the pot. Tournament staff asked dealers to pause after their hand was complete to begin hand-for-hand play on the bubble.
But that would not be needed.
In a blind versus blind battle on Table 3, Rich Forte faced a bet of 4,000 with the board reading . He raised it up to 16,000 and his opponent piled another 43,700 on top for an all in bet. Forte quickly called with and his trip fours were dominating .
He needed to dodge the two remaining sevens in the deck and the river was safe. Forte earned the pot, his opponent was eliminated, and the 18 remaining players were in the money.
