Ray Dehkarghani has bested Jason Mercier for the bracelet and grand prize in the $10,000 Razz event at the 2016 WSOP. This was one of the most watched tournaments of the WSOP for one major reason. A bet placed by Vanessa Selbst in January would give Mercier a 180:1 payoff on $10,000 if he could win three bracelets this year. He has one so far and two to go. He almost made it here, but captured second place with the Razz tournament.
Razz is played the opposite of the most popular forms of poker. Here the low hand is the winner. As a result, most of the players are more well rounded and experienced playing poker. The final hand had Mercier with (7 -5) J 5 K and Dehkarghani with (8 6) 9 10 7.
Mercier still has other tournaments left to get additional bracelets.

The top finishers were:
Ray Dehkarghani $273,338
