Ashkan Razavi Wins WSOP $1,500 NLH Re-Entry For $781,398

Ashkan Razavi Wins WSOP $1,500 NLH Re-Entry For $781,398Canadian Ashkan Razavi has won Event 9: $1,500 NLH Re-Entry, after overcoming a huge field of 3,404 players on his way to capturing a WSOP bracelet, and collecting the $781,398 first place prize.
Following his remarkable win, the 30 year old pro commented: “For a $1,500 it was really tough. There were a lot of good players, a lot of known pros that are amazing. I feel very fortunate to have gotten through the whole field.”
On the last day of play, Ashkan Razavi faced a tough final table which included two-times bracelet winners Greg Mueller and Brian Rast, as well as talented Philadelphia-based pro Amanda Musumeci.
Musumeci (A-A) then eliminated Ben Reinhart (A-K) in 8th ($78,259), before Greg Mueller bowed out in 7th ($103,258), after open-shoving pre-flop with Q-10 into the pocket kings of Derrick Huang.
Next, Ashkan Razavi entered the fray after being dealt pocket kings and doubling up against Duy Ho (A-K), before then dispatching a short-stacked Brian Rast in 6th ($137,632) whose A-8 was no match for the A-K of Razavi.
Subsequently, Ashkan Razavi’s continual three-betting lead to a confrontation with second biggest stack Duy Ho, who made an ill-timed four-bet all-in stand with pocket threes against Razavi’s Kings, and so exited in 5th for $185,378.
After Ashkan Razavi eliminated Derrick Huang in 3rd ($347,228), he started the heads-up phase holding a massive 13.2 million to 2.1 million lead over Amanda Musumeci. Despite doubling up once, Musumeci was unable to stage a comeback and so finished the runner-up for an impressive $481,643 payday, while Ashkan Razavi captured a career first WSOP bracelet. Razavi has now surpassed $1 million in live winnings since his first tournament cash back in 2008.
The final table payouts were as follows:
1: Ashkan Razavi – $781,398
2: Amanda Musumeci – $481,643
3: Derrick Huang – $347,228
4: Ryan Olisar – $252,379
5: Duy Ho – $185,378
6: Brian Rast – $137,632
7: Greg Mueller – $103,258
8: Ben Reinhart – $78,259
9: Dien Le – $59,969
