Badih BounahraBadih Bounahra was arguably the tightest player at the table, but you wouldn’t have known it by his cheering section, which was the largest at the World Series of Poker main event final table.

The 49-year-old was probably the victim of his passive approach, which included a lot of limping and rarely defending his blinds.

After blinding down to less than five big blinds, Bounahra shoved over Martin Staszko’s opening raise with AHeart Suit 5Club Suit. Stazsko made the automatic call with ASpade Suit 9Diamond Suit and his hand held on a board of 7Club Suit 6Heart Suit 2Club Suit KHeart Suit 6Diamond Suit to bring the final table down to six players.

The Belize native scored $1,314,097 for his seventh-place finish, which is by far the largest of his career.
