Danzer Won't Be Adding POY Points in Event #3
Brandon Shack-Harris, Daniel Negreanu, and Richard Ashby had all been eliminated from this tournament, which left George Danzer with a freeroll to extend his 2014 World Series of Poker Player of the Year lead. Unfortunately for the German, any chance of that happening just came to an end courtesy of Michael Wang.
We missed the hand, but Danzer was kind enough to provide us some details after the fact. According to him, it was a "classic PLO" hand. A raising war left him with a pot-sized bet behind, and he got it in on a flop against Wang.
Danzer had two pair with his double-suited hand, which matched two of the same suit on the flop. On the other hand, Wang just had the aces... that is until a on the turn gave him two pair to counterfeit Danzer. The river was a blank, and that was all she wrote for Danzer in Event #3.
