Friday June 21,2013 : Bryan Campanello – a 21-year-old American pro – acquired his first WSOP bracelet in event 33: $2,500 buy-in Seven-Card Razz.
With several World Series of Poker Circuit cashes to his credit, the young pro faced an entry field of 300 other players which generated a prize pool of $684,775; that enabled 32 players to cash.
By the time the field had been distilled to a final table Campanello faced some experienced poker talent across the felt that included David Bach, Jim Wheatley, Sebastian Pauli, Ivan Schertzer, Brent Keller, Rick Fuller and Ismael Bojang.
That quickly reduced to four players, where the action continued for around three hours before the heads up was set, pitting Campanello against David ‘The Gunslinger' Bach, with Campanello holding a massive chip lead.
Despite an heroic effort, Bach could not gain enough traction to overcome his chip deficiency and he was bundled out of the event in second place for $110,098, leaving Campanello with his first bracelet and $178,052 in first prize money.
