On Saturday afternoon, 103 players gathered in the Amazon Room for the start of the $10,000 Razz Championship. That number was reduced to 64 through the first ten levels, then all the way down to 12 after the next ten. That leaves two tables returning to action for today's finale, and the remaining field is as interesting as expected.
Phil Hellmuth is the guy everyone's talking right now. "The Brat" seemed like a fitting nickname for the thirteen-time bracelet winner during portions of Day 2, and Hellmuth spent much of the day oscillating between friendly banter with his tablemates and profanity-laced outbursts of intense frustration. As the stack improved, though, so did the mood, and Hellmuth settled down and chipped up after the dinner break. He finished the night with 307,000 chips. That's good for third place right now with just 11 players standing between him and a second razz bracelet, which would be #14 overall.
On that all-time bracelets list, Erik Seidel sits alone in sixth place with eight, and he too is looking to add to that tally today. Seidel was the victim of one of Hellmuth's Day 2 tirades, and he'd likely be thrilled to snatch this bracelet away from the man he's chasing on the leaderboard. He's in fourth place with 284,000 chips, hot on the heels of his rival. A win today would tie Seidel with the late great Johnny Moss on the bracelets leaderboard.
Shaun Deeb (155,000) is still alive, too, and playing with a chance to win back-to-back $10,000 events. He just earned bracelet #1 in the Pot-Limit Hold'em event three short days ago. Deeb was the chip leader for much of Day 2, but the late levels knocked him all the way down toward the bottom. He'll start the day with about 10 big bets.
Adam Owen has already locked up his biggest career tournament cash, and he holds the chip lead entering Day 3. His stack of 591,000 puts him well out in front of the pack, though the big limits mean the lead will likely change hands several times before the bracelet is clasped around someone's wrist.
