Event #1 isn't the only event dishing out big prizes on Sunday. The $100k guaranteed Senior's event begins Sunday at 9 a.m. and will award several big payouts too. Last April's seniors winner, Steve Runnion, took home a whopping $43,890 for his $250 investment. He defeated 1,237 entries, which was by far the largest ever WSOP Circuit senior's event. This year's Senior event again has a $250 buy-in and again is expected to be big. The tournament begins at 9 a.m. with registration remaining open until the start of Level 7, which will be about 12:15 p.m. Players are allowed unlimited re-entry through the registration period. Note that the Senior's event is not an official gold ring event. Casino Championship points will not be awarded, but the winner will receive a WSOP gold ring in addition to the top cash prize.
