Germany's George Danzer Wins WSOP $10k Razz (Event #18)

Germany's George Danzer Wins WSOP $10k Razz (Event #18)A few days after Davidi Kitai won the first non-US bracelet of the 2014 WSOP, the Europeans have now made it two from 18 events after Germany’s George Danzer triumphed over a 112 player field at the $10,000 Razz Event to collect his first career WSOP bracelet, as well as the $294,792 first place prize.
This was the eighth time Danzer had managed to reach a WSOP final table, and fortunately this time around the 30-year-old poker pro succeeded in finally nailing down the victory. Following the win Danzer, who now boasts $1,535,538 in live tournament earnings, said:
“It’s everything. For ten years now, since I was 21, I always wanted to come to the World Series and be a world champion. I was always watching the news to see who won, and I wanted to be like them. I come over every year, and it’s my tenth year now. When you get close, you get a taste of it, and I came close a couple of times. I’m really, really happy now.”
The $10,000 Seven Card Razz (Event #18) attracted a small but talented field of pros to create a prize pool worth $1,052,800. Amongst the notable pros then seeing a return on their investment was Scott Clements in 16th ($18,592), Hoyt Corkins in 14th ($21,371), Paul Volpe in 13th ($21,371), Daniel Negreanu in 10th ($28,878), and Daniel O’Brien in 9th ($28,878).
The final table was no less spectacular but eventually Danzer would go heads-up against Brandon Shack-Harris, who last month won a bracelet in the $1,000 Pot Limit Omaha (Event #3) for $205,634. On the way to their final battle Shack-Harris eliminated David Bach in 8th ($34,500), Naoya Kihara in 7th ($41,806), Todd Dakake in 6th ($51,481), and Brian Hastings in 5th ($64,557).
Brandon Shack-Harris then did likewise to Yuval Bronshtein in 4th ($82,602), and Todd Barlow in 3rd ($114,081) to usher in the heads-up phase of the competition with both Danzer and Shack-Harris fairly even in chips. Eventually, however, Danzer managed to overcome his last opponent to pick up a prestigious gold bracelet, although its fair to say both players are currently showing incredible form at this year’s WSOP.
Final Table Results:
1 George Danzer – $294,792
2 Brandon Shack-Harris – $182,155
3 Todd Barlow – $114,081
4 Yuval Bronshtein – $82,602
5 Brian Hastings – $64,557
6 Todd Dakake – $51,481
7 Naoya Kihara – $41,806
8 David Bach – $34,500
