Raymer Fossilized

Grey Raymer

No Limit Hold'em:

We saw 2004 World Series of Poker Main Event champ Greg Raymer preparing to sign a fossil, which is his custom after being eliminated from a tournament. Gavin Griffin was to be the beneficiary, but told his victim to keep it and pass it along as he'd no doubt lose it, which he said he did to a copy of Barry Greenstein's book, Ace on the River, after having eliminated him in a past tournament.

"I'll set it aside," Raymer explained. "Then, if you win this tournament, I'll give it to you and you'll need to put it in a very expensive case, but you'll have to buy it."

After Raymer exited, Griffin informed us that the champ had shipped for 14,000 from cutoff with {8-Spades}{9-Spades} and he made the call with {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts} from the small blind. The board ran out {Q-}{4-}{3-}{4-}{A-} and that was the end of that.
