WSOP 2016: Danzer nabs Team Pro's first final table

It's not going to be easy for Team PokerStars Pro George Danzer, but later today, he will be the first member of Team PokerStars Pro within reaching distance of a 2016 World Series of Poker bracelet. 

Early this morning, Danzer made it to the final table of the $10,000 7-Card Stud championship at the WSOP. 






Before the end of the night, Danzer was among the final six left in the game. The challenge for him? His chip stack is the smallest of the bunch. What's more, he's got a murderer's row with him at the table.  

Robert Mizrachi--1,371,000        
Matt Grapenthien--1,157,000        
Steve Weiss--682,000        
Ted Forrest--447,000        
David Benyamine--363,000        
George Danzer--340,000

Danzer's WSOP results over the past six years have been nothing short of impressive. Six of his first seven WSOP cashes were final tables. That led up to 2014 when Danzer finally won his first bracelet...and then another one less than a week later. Later that year, he won gold once again at the WSOP in Australia, making for three bracelets in one year. 

Regardless of his finish today, it will mark Danzer's deepest run in two years. To make it a bracelet, he will have to catch a hand early. If anyone can make that happen, it's the man with the tricky scarf.

Danzer isn't the only one making money in the Stud Championship. Brazilian Team Pro Felipe Ramos managed to sneak past the bubble for a 14th place cash.

Today will be the first day the 2016 WSOP crowns an open event bracelet winner. Will it be Danzer? 

No matter what happens, congrats to Ramos on his cash, and good luck to Danzer in his quest for his fourth bracelet.
