When we last saw james Miller, he was exiting the Mothership final table stage in 7th place, after making an impressive run through a 4,400+ runner field in the Seniors Championship.
Today, Miller is proving that his Seniors run was no fluke by duking it out against competitors that, while only half his age, have likely played millions more hands than he ever will.
We just saw Miller drag another pot his way, with the board reading . Miller's value bet of 40,000 was called on the river, and his for the low straight was good enough for the win.
Miller has survived through a day and half of grueling six-handed action here in Event #32, playing against a star-studded field that included many of the game's elite figures. While Phil Hellmuth and Phil Galfond fell short of the money, and Oivier Busquet and Daniel Negreanu busted shortly after cashing, Miller's still healthy stack puts him squarely in contention to reach his second final table in a single week of WSOP tournament play.
