Lisandro, Davis wins headline WSOP June 24

Mike Davis
Michael Davis defeated a record field at the 2009 NLHE Seniors event.

Michael Davis turned a short stack into the Seniors No Limit Hold'em World Championship Wednesday.

He grabbed $437,358 in first place prize money becoming the last senior standing from a record 2,707 entrants.

The final day began with 28 players and Davis did not take the chip lead until the first hand of heads-up play with Scott Buller.

After doubling up, he never looked back on the way to the biggest Seniors win in Max Pescatori and Paul Darden.

Day 3 begins at 1 p.m. Thursday and will continue until a winner is established.

Event 47 - $2,500 Mixed Limit/No Limit Hold'em

The first day of the $2,500 Mixed Hold'em event drew 527 players Wednesday.

However, less than one-fifth of that number remained when play wrapped for the night.

Eli Elezra flirted with the chip lead for most of the day but was supplanted at the top of the overnight leaderboard by Barry Greenstein.

Daniel Negreanu, Gavin Griffin and Jeff Madsen all survived to see Day 2.

Play will resume on Day 2 at 2 p.m. Thursday.
