Mohsin Charania Wins WSOP $1,500 NLHE Event for Triple CrownA total of 1,580 players entered WSOP Event #52: $1,500 No Limit Hold’em to create a $691,200 prize pool. Following three days of action at the Rio, it was Mohsin Charania who would subsequently overcome the field, including Cary Katz heads-up, to claim a career first gold bracelet, as well as a first place prize worth $364,438.
In addition to boosting his live earnings to $5,618,170, Charania has also now become a triple crown winner, having previously captured Main Event titles on the European Poker Tour (EPT), and the World Poker Tour (WPT). Commenting on his remarkable feat, Charania that it felt “pretty damn awesome.”
Event #52 offered 237 paid money spots, and amongst the notable pros turning a profit was Tony Dunst in 96th ($3,177), Dan Heimiller in 44th ($7,536), Eugene Katchalov in 35th ($9,107), Jason Mercier in 17th ($13,807), and Rainer Kempe in 15th ($17,316).
At the final table, Charania then eliminated Samuel Phillips in 6th and Brandon Ageloff in 3rd to usher in heads-up play against Cary Katz for the title. Charania subsequently started heads-up holding a sizeable lead, and managed to grind his opponent’s stack lower before the defining hand was played with Catz moving all-in preflop holding K-Q, only to be called by Charania with a dominating A-Q. The dealer then laid out a 9-9-2-10-2 board to consign Katz to a runner-up finish worth $225,181, while Mohsin Charania was awarded a coveted WSOP bracelet.
Commenting on his supportive and rather vocal rail, Charania stated: “This is pretty damn awesome. This happens when I’m just playing online on Tuesdays, so I’m used to it. Wait ’til you see me go deep in a $109 (tournament). You learn to block it out. You know when you’re gonna win a pot everyone’s gonna cheer for you.”
