Amanda Musumeci - 2nd Place
The final hand of Event 9: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Re-Entry at the 2012 World Series of Poker has been dealt and it went a little something like this.
Ashkan Razavi opened to 200,000 from the button and Amanda Musumeci decided now was the time to shove her short-stack all in. Razavi thought for just a few moments before making the call, prompting both players to turn their hands over.
The players were on their feet, the rail was in their feet, the excitement was building. The dealer turned over a flop. Razavi hit his ten and Musumeci would need some help. The on the turn was no good and it was looking like it was about to be all over.
Another pair for Razavi and that was it for Musumeci. For her 2nd place effort, Musumeci received a bittersweet $481,643. And with that, Ashkan Razavi wins his first WSOP gold bracelet.
