With the 2018 World Series of Poker well over halfway, today sees the start of Event #50: $1,500 Razz. This event has always been full of stories and big names. In 2014, Ted Forrest denied Phil Hellmuth heads-up. In 2015, Max Pescatori won his first of two bracelets that summer. And Rep Porter defeated Michael Gathy in 2016, with Gathy going on to claim another runner-up and a bracelet that summer.
Last year, Jason Gola triumphed over a final table featuring 14-time bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth, and denied David "ODB" Baker after a six-hour heads-up battle. Gola eventually triumphed to take home $132,957 for his victory and the first WSOP gold bracelet of his career.
