Praz Bansi wins his first
WSOP Gold Bracelet

London Consultant makes good during the not so main event

Nestled in the backdrop of the camera crews and countless numbers of
spectators, players vied for $230,000 and a coveted championship bracelet
during event #40 of the World Series of Poker. The two-day event began
with just over 1000 players and ended with only 40 after the first day.
While lacking the attention and prestige, the final table of the $1,000 no-
limit Hold’em event displayed an array of competitors as focused as those
participating in the $10,000 main event that encompassed it.

A couple of hands after the final table was established, N. Vijayan was the
first to be eliminated. The sales manager from Kuala Lumpur hit the rails
with $20,020 only minutes before the remaining players recessed for
dinner.
Shortly after the players returned from break, Nick Memeti was the next to
go. Memeti called Anh Lu’s pre-flop raise of 30k and saw a 7c 4c 3h hit the
board. After the 2h and 10c showed on the turn and river Memeti raised
while Lu re-raised all-in. Memeti called and showed pocket 3’s for the set.
However, Lu’s turned over A-5 giving him the straight and Memeti an
eighth place finish.
Mark Petrillo helped to further the adage about pocket jacks as his all-in
against Fabrice Soulier’s pocket As,Ah sent him to the rail. Salt was added
to Petrillo’s wound as Soulier flopped a set before a meaningless turn and
river.
Next out was John Buttifant. The 22-year old college student moved all-in
while Soulier called. Buttifant’s pocket 9’s could not hold up against the
Frenchman’s A-6 as Ah showed on the flop. The Kh on the turn and the 5h
river sealed Butifant’s fate at sixth place.
Earl Coggins was eliminated next after going all-in with 6-8 suited. Baktash
Gulzarzada called with Ad-Jc and eliminated Coggins with the high-card ace.
Soulier saw a 4th place finish after being crippled in a previous hand. His
all-in Qc-7c was called by Lu’s 9c-Kc. Although Soulier flopped a pair of
queens, jubilation turned into defeat after Lu caught a river Ks.
In third place was Baktash Gulzarzada. The Afghani-born mortgage broker
moved all in for 384k. Bansi called. His Ah-Ks dominated Praz’s As-8s while
the board failed to improve either player’s hand.
Heads-up action pit Praz Bansi against Anh Lu who experienced one of the
most amazing comebacks of this year’s WSOP. Earlier in the day, a bad
beat left Lu with a pitiful 10k stack. Unwavering, he built his stack back up
to a phenomenal 250k through a miracle three-way all-in, a couple of more
all-ins and further aggressive pre-flop strategy.
“A miracle,” Lu answered through his interpreter and mentor, Men “The
Master” Nguyen when asked how he was able to come back from such a
low stack.   
However, Bansi was the aggressor during heads-up action forcing his
opponent to fold four times after reraising Lu pre-flop. Crippled, Lu could
only go all-in with 8s-3s against Bansi’s ace-anything. An ace on the river
gave Bansi the victory. “Amazing,” replied Bansi when asked how it felt to
be a WSOP gold bracelet winner. “I started with 1500 chips, and just
threw some up… I got moves,” Bansi said with a grin.
