Tournament Report

Gary Gibbs Wins First Gold Bracelet – Wins Senior’s World Championship of Poker

Gary Gibbs topped a record field of 519 players in the $1,000 buy-in Senior’s World Championship. The number of participants was the largest ever for any senior’s event in history – proving that poker is not just a young man’s (or women’s) game. This may be the “Year of the Young Guns” due to all the youthful poker champions winning gold bracelets. But, Gibbs showed everyone a thing or two about how to play poker. The game played was Texas Hold’em. The event was limited only to seniors – aged 50 or higher – and was held on Sunday and Monday, May 16th-17th in the Horseshoe Casino in downtown Las Vegas. Gibbs, from Hot Springs, Arkansas, reigned supreme at the final table, which lasted exactly eight hours. He won $136,960 and captured his first ever gold bracelet at the World Series.
