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.
Out of the razz, was bring-in 4 times and made big pairs. Not a good combo with 3.5bbsFollow @b_campanello45
Meanwhile, George Novo has also been eliminated from the tournament.
