Sokoloff and Brown Doing Fine
 

Razz

Paul Sokoloff and Andrew Brown started the day as two of the shortest stacks, but that has changed recently as both of them are sitting behind fairly healthy stacks. Those two recently took part in a Razz hand that went like this.

After the bring-in flicked out a chip with a showing, Brown completed with the showing. Sokoloff made the call. On fourth street, Sokoloff bet and Brown called.

David Bach Eliminated in 14th Place ($23,525)
 

David Bach - 14th Place

David Bach started the day as second on the chip leader board, but that changed very quickly as he lost chunks of stack in the first level. Early here in the second level and Bach has been eliminated in 14th place.

We weren't at the table to catch the action, but noticed Matt Waxman was raking in plenty of new chips. We asked him what happened and Phil Hellmuth chimed in, "Mr. Waxman here hit what we in the industry call four-of-a-kind."

Waxman then filled us in that Bach opened under the gun in a round of hold'em and Waxman defended in the big blind. The board ran out and Bach got the remainder of his stack in on the turn. Waxman held and Bach , with Waxman's hand plenty enough to send Bach to the rail.
