Event #52: $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship

Who's Stopping Danzer's Quest For POY?

• Level 15: 3,000-6,000, 0 ante
George Danzer

Well, for now it's certainly not Kevin Song. Danzer, who's still slightly in the lead for this year's WSOP Player of the Year after John Hennigan took down the $50k Players' Championship last night, raked in a big pot just now to pot him in contention for yet another bracelet.

Song raised from early position and Danzer called from the big blind. The flop came down {J-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} and Danzer checked to Song who bet. Danzer raised, Song three-bet and Danzer four-bet.

Song called.

The turn was the {5-Spades} and Danzer bet, Song called. On the river, the {9-Diamonds}, Song called another bet and shook his head as the German turned over {J-Hearts}{J-Spades}.

"Set over set again?" Danzer asked Song, who took quite a while before finally mucking his cards.
