Micah Raskin

Micah Raskin, from the United States, enters the final table as the short stack. At the unofficial final table, he played a 2.4 million-chip pot with Shaun Deeb, in which he called Deeb’s all in on a board of {7-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} holding just {5-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}. Deeb had that crushed with {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}, and held when the {2-Clubs} completed the board.

Raskin has amassed over $1.3 million in career live tournament earnings, with his largest cash coming in 2009, where he won a Borgata $500,000 guarantee ($320,231). At the 2011 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, Raskin finished sixth in the $10,000 High Roller for $39,575, and at the 2012 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, he took second in a $2,000 bounty event for $23,850.

He also final tabled the 2012 EPT Sanremo Main Event, finishing sixth for $170,435.

If Raskin finishes fourth or higher today, he will earn the largest cash of his career. As it stands, he’s already locked up his fourth-largest score ever.
