Claude Smithern, 87 years young

Jack Effel has just informed us that they found the oldest player in the field -- 87-year-old Claude Smithern from Palm Springs, California.

Smithern was asked to give a few words, to which he said, "I have a last longer bet - it's between me and the chips, but I think I'm gonna win." The crowd laughed and applauded.

Smithern is currently sitting with 1,275.
