Bob Bou Nahra at the poker table of the WSOP’S Final

Turning to some sporting news, Belizeans got a crash course on poker when business man Bob Badih Bou Nahra made it to the World Series of Poker’s November Nine Final Table in 2011. Bob is once again gaining grounds in the preliminary events leading up to the WSOP’S FINAL table. The 2014 Games are being held at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. We found him today at event number twenty-one called the No Limit Hold ‘em Championship. The Buy In is one thousand dollars, and the prize pool is one point eight million US dollars.  Bob’s Chip Count is one million dollars. There were over two thousand entries and Bob is among the remaining seven as chip leader and is trying to win his first WSOP bracelet.  In event nine, he placed seventeenth. The championship continues until mid-July and the main event will be from the fifth to the twentieth of July. In 2011, Bob made it to the World Series of Poker taking on professional players from Germany, Ukraine, US, Britain and Ireland. The WSOP is the most prestigious poker tournament in the world with the winner of the Main Event considered to be the World Champion. While Bob did not go on to become the champion, he did take in a good hand in prize money…more than a million dollars. At the time, his Belize cap and cigar made him a celebrity.
