Sam Razavi wins UKIPT leaderboard

Sam Razavi wins UKIPT leaderboard

Wednesday, 26 October 2011

Sam Razavi has topped the PokerStars UK and Ireland Poker Tour by 19.45 points to lock up his place as UKIPT Player of the Season. He earns a free ticket to every UKIPT event in season three for his efforts.

The Blackbelt Poker Pro began his UKIPT Season 2 with a bang, outlasting a 602-strong field in Cork to win his first title. He also made deep runs in Manchester, Edinburgh and Nottingham events. His performance was nearly matched by Rupinder Bedi, who went deep in five UKIPT events. Razavi’s win, however, pushed him over the edge.

We can almost certainly expect to see Razavi, who plays online as “KODDZILLA”, at future UKIPT events seeing as how he’s freerolling the lot.

We caught up with Razavi last month. Read the full interview here.
