James Obst emerged victorious in the $10,000 Razz Championship last night. Obst's victory earned him $265,138 in prize money and his first gold coveted bracelet!
Obst had to fight very hard for the title, as eventual runner-up Eric Kurtzman had a 4-1 chip lead at two stages during the heads-up.

So you pay $10,000 buyin and only get $26,674 for 8th place... not a lot of money and probably guys there are good players, maybe not so popular game and some rich people join for fun, but still I think very good competition for not a lot of money, only top 3 over $100k mark, of course not a lot of runners
I think 80-90% of the entrants are not really playing for the money, it's all about the bracelet there, and with the very few entrants it is obvious that 8th place there win only $26k for a $10k buy in tournament...

I believe this is one of the tournaments in poker that deserves appreciation. Not an easy one to win, and playing for prizes that big, it makes it even more difficult. If i was a pro i would never play this format for 10000$

Massive well done to James Obst, who won the $10,000 Razz Championship and captured his first WSOP bracelet. What kind of game is Razz? I don't think I have ever played Razz. I will try it out sometime.

319/5000 If I believe the same thing ... what I really wanted was the bracelet, auqnuqe the prize was not bad at all, well I do not know what I would do with so much money lol but good hope some day I can get to play some good tournament with nice prizes, although I see it in the future a little distant even since I have much to learn
Eric Kurtsman for me this name is unfamiliar ... of course, I'm just blame for not being very erudite in the world of players but nevertheless ... the second place is certainly a good result and the cash win is not bad
