World Series Of Poker -- Bryan Campanello Wins $2,500 Seven Card Razz

21-Year-Old Campanello Wins First Gold Bracelet


Bryan CampanelloBryan Campanello won event no. 33, the $2,500 seven card razz Thursday night at the 2013 World Series of Poker. Campanello scored his first gold bracelet and $178,052 cash.

This was the summer’s only seven card razz tournament and it drew 301 players, which generated a $684,775 prize pool.

Campanello, a 21-year-old poker pro from Texas already has 12 career cashes and 3 titles on his record. He grew up playing Texas hold’em and pot-limit Omaha, but thought he’d try out razz despite only playing a few hands after busting out of a no-limit hold’em tournament.

“After grinding for seven hours and then busting I did not want to do all those Vegas things and blow a bunch of money,” he explained. “I thought I could have an edge in the razz tournament. I started figuring out the game and I felt like I could learn the game as I was going along throughout the tournament. I managed to pick up on a bunch of things.”

The only other previous bracelet winner at the final table was David Bach who finished runner-up.

Take a look at the final table results:
