2014 World Series of Poker

Event #7: $1,500 Seven-Card Razz
Days: 3

Brandon Cantu Eliminated in 6th Place ($19,183)

Level 21 : 10,000-20,000, 2,000 ante
Brandon Cantu - 6th Place

Greg Pappas completed with a {3-} and received a call from Phil Hellmuth, who was showing a {9-}. Brandon Cantu came along with a {6-}, and then all three players saw fourth. Pappas bet, Hellmuth called, and Cantu raised. Pappas three-bet, Hellmuth folded, and Cantu got the rest of his chips in.

Pappas: {2-}{6-} / {3-}{10-}{3-}{2-} / {Q-}
Cantu: {7-}{8-} / {6-}{k-}{2-}{7-} / {K-}
Hellmuth: (x-x) / {9-}{q-} fold

Pappas ended up making a Q-10-6-3-2 low, which meant all Cantu needed was a card lower than a king that didn't pair the board. He squeezed out his card and initially stated that it wasn't paint, but as he peeled back a little more he discovered it was. Only a king would send him out the door, and as he peeled back to full exposure he saw the {K-Hearts} monarch staring back at him.

Cantu, who placed third in the razz event two years ago when Hellmuth won, slapped the card on the table, shook his head, and then took his leave in sixth place for $19,183.
