Event 16: John Racener - 3rd Place

$1500 + $150 + $500 Bounty Big Stack NLH

John Racener Jr. - 3rd Place - $34,003

John Racener falls short of victory when his A-5 loses against Orson Young's A-8.

John had 20 bigs left with 600,000 in the big blind. Young's A-8 held on a dry board.

Over the two day tournament Racener was only all-in one or two times.

He began the day with 109,000 and plodded along simply playing his game.

He thought the field was fairly easy with some weak spots at the final table. But the final four shook down to the four best players the way John figured it would.

Five $500 knock-out bounties shoved into his jean pocket as he calls it a night.

Friend Chris showed his support from the rail.

Congratulations to WSOP poker phenom John Racener for his third place finish in Borgata's Big Stack 2K.

Tack on another $34,003 to your already impressive career earnings.
