Greg Raymer Does it Again

Greg Raymer Does it Again

Tuesday, 20 November 2012

Greg Raymer has done it again. Not content with winning a hat-trick of titles on the Heartland Poker Tour, the 2004 World Champion has amazingly added a fourth, and all in the space of just eight events.

Fossilman outlasted a 336-runner field to take the honours at the HPT's season ending Championship Open at Belterra Casino Resort. Raymer started the day as the short stack but a double up on the very first hand put him right back into contention and just eight hands later he was the chip leader and firmly in control of the final table.

After Bruce Ostrander was eliminated in third it was left to Jacob Bazeley to try and derail the Raymer express but nothing could stop Fossilman who sealed an incredible quartet of victories when his AQ held against Bazeley's A6.

The final table positions and payouts in the $540 buy-in event were as follows:

1. Greg Raymer – $106,030
2. Jacob Bazeley – $59,706
3. Bruce Ostrander – $38,088
4. Iverson “Cotton” Snuffer – $32,941
5. Jason Gwinn – $25,324
6. Kenny Hicks – $20,588
