Jason Mercier second in $10K Razz Championship after Ray Dehkharghani

Just a couple of days after winning the $10K 2-7 Draw Lowball Championship for $273,335 and a lot of extra money thanks to some bracelet bets, Jason Mercier found himself in another good position to win a WSOP bracelet in the $10K Razz Championship.

 

 

Mercier can win $1,8 million from Vanessa Selbst if he manages to win three bracelets during this World Series of Poker. With only $10K of his own money on the line, Vanessa sure is sweating all Mercier’s action. She can be a little relieved with the outcome of the Razz Championship, because Mercier ended as runner-up behind Ray Dehkharghani.

Starting as the chipleader, all eyes were on Mercier. Unfortunately for him (and fortunately for Selbst) he ended the match as runner-up, good for another $168,936. Ray Dehkharghani took the bracelet and a price of $273,338. Below are the results of the final table.
