Phan, Fossilman Flame Out

Tim Phan’s run at the WSOP ended after Andrew Black hit a four-outter on the river to fill a full house (Queens over Aces).  Phan flopped a set, but Black busted it with the Queen.  Phan finishes in 24th place, grabbing $304,680.

Also out is the Fossilman.  Raymer lost most of his chips against Aaron Kanter when a river heart flushed his pocket Kings.  Raymer goes out in 25th, earns $304,680, and with this performance, likely earns some long overdue respect as a great no limit hold’em tournament player.

    I hate the river! I hated to hear that Raymer got busted. I liked him as a final player. Without D. Negranua, Gus Hansen, and Greg Raymer, I don’t really care who wins. Sad when we’re following poker as if it’s a sport. Do we need “team” jerseys and mascots for poker?

    The Full Tilt guys all wear jerseys…so in a way they are a team. Thankfully no mascots. Maybe they can get that guy who wore the Elmo head to be one.
