Event #7: $1,500 Seven-Card Razz

Last Year's Runner-Up vs. the 2010 WSOP POY

[user153638] • Level 3: 100-200, 25 ante

Last year David Bach finished runner-up in the $2,500 buy-in razz tournament to Bryan Campanello. In 2010, Frank Kassela had a stellar summer and finished with WSOP Player of the Year honors. Here in Event #7: $1,500 Seven-Card Razz the two just did battle.

After a player brought it in with a {Q-}, Bach completed to 100 with an {A-} showing. Kassela responded by raising to 200 with a {6-}, the rest of the field folded, and Bach made the call.

Bach: (x-x) / {a-}{3-}{10-}
Kassela: (x-x) / {6-}{9-}{8-}

Bach ended up betting fourth street and Kassela called. Fifth street saw Kassela take the lead and he wasted little time in leading out for 200. Bach didn't look happy and slowly scooped up his cards before sending them to the dealer. It wasn't much of a hand, but it gave us a good excuse to update you on their respective chip counts.

Meanwhile, things didn't go Perry Friedman's way today as he found himself among the first eliminations.
