Stuart Rutter Flying High as Event #40: $2,500 Seven Card Razz Nears Final
UK pro, Pokernews columnist, GUKPT champion, WSOP final table maker, Sheffield Wednesday fan and all round nice guy Stuart Rutter is on course to make his 2nd WSOP final table of the series tonight, as he is currently 3rd out of the final 15 in Event #40: $2,500 Seven Card Razz. Rutter has been specialising in mixed games recently in the hopes it would yield a bracelet and that might become a reality tonight.
Richard Ashby has already bagged a stud bracelet so if Stuart could capture a Razz strap in this event, the fantastic year of the Brits will exceed everyones expectations. $214,085 will go to the winner but make no mistake, it’s the gold that Rutter will be playing for when he returns to play the last 15 of this event tonight.
Find out how he gets on by following our Event #40: $2,500 Seven Card Razz Live Updates this evening.
