Charles Sinn Holds Commanding Lead at Final Table of $1,500 Razz; Yuri Dzivielevski, David "ODB" Baker Still in the Hunt
It took until the last hand of a grueling 10-hour day, but the final table of Event #42: $1,500 Razz has been set.
Charles Sinn will take 2,345,000 and a comfortable chip lead into his first WSOP final table. Sinn leads second-place Brett Feldman (1,230,000) by more than one million chips.
Sinn and Feldman have never won a WSOP bracelet, but the final table is full of players who have accomplished that goal. Matt Grapenthien (1,215,000), Yuri Dzivielevski (1,015,000), Bradley Ruben (855,000), and David "ODB" Baker will all look to add another bracelet to their collection tomorrow. Baker built a sizeable chip lead over the rest of the field during the day, being the first to break the million-chip barrier, but fell back toward the bottom of the leaderboard at 180,000.
Final Table Seat Draw
|1||2||David "ODB" Baker||180,000|
Day 2 began with 98 players out of a starting field of 311 with their sights on making the money. Daniel Negreanu, Ari Engel, and Matt Waxman were all eliminated before the money bubble burst. The unfortunate bubble-boy was Reza Golestani, who fell in 48th place.
Once the bubble burst, David "Bakes" Baker (46th), Day 1 chip leader Ariel Shefer (44th), Anthony Zinno (41st), reigning WSOP Player of the Year Robert Campbell (39th), and Ryan Riess (27th) all found their way to the payout desk. Actor James Woods made it to 20th place before he was knocked out in a double-elimination along with Tom McCormick by Feldman.
Play will resume at 2 p.m. PST on Saturday inside the Mothership in the Amazon Room. A new champion will be crowned by the end of the day, and PokerNews will be on hand to provide all the live updates.
