The Defending Champ Among First to Go

[user153638] • Level 11: 1,000-2,000, 200 ante
Bryan Campanello on Day 1.

Bryan Campanello topped a field of 301 players to win this event (or at least it's $2,500 buy-in counterpart) last year for his first WSOP gold bracelet. He also became the youngest player to ever win the razz title. Campanello, who was fresh off winning the WSOP Circuit Harrah's New Orleans Main Event for $175,459 and cashing in the National Championship, managed to make Day 2 in his title defense, albeit as a short stack.

Unfortunately Campanello was unable to spin it up and was recently eliminated by Alex Dovzhenko. We missed the hand, but from what we were told, Campanello got it in on fifth street with a draw to a six. He missed and that was the end of his title defense.

Bryan CampanelloOut of the razz, was bring-in 4 times and made big pairs. Not a good combo with 3.5bbs

Meanwhile, George Novo has also been eliminated from the tournament.
