Event 18: $2,500 Seven Card Razz

Some Things Are More Important

• Taso 6: 300-600, 75 ante

We recently checked with tournament officials to see if the defending champion of this event, Rep Porter, had late registered. They confirmed that they had checked the list and he would not be defending his title. We weren't quite sure as to the reason why, but we checked his Twitter and found out. Needless to say, it touched our hearts and more than passes for a valid excuse.
