The 411 On The 41st (WSOP): Praz Wins Another Bracelet
June 3, 2022
Praz Bansi, a 31-year-old professional poker player from London, may have been easy to overlook during the first week of this year’s World Series of Poker, given all the other top tier poker luminaries currently swarming the halls of the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino, but recently in Event #5- the $1,500 buy-in No-Limit Hold ‘em- Bansi gave railbirds yet another good argument, why he deserves a look.

Bansi, having carefully navigated his way through a total field of 2,092 players, successfully took down Event #5 early this morning, earning a top prize worth over a half-million dollars, as well as his second career WSOP gold bracelet.  Praz, perhaps previously most well known for his third place finish in last year’s WSOP Europe main event, now has over $2.3 Million in live tournament cashes and is quickly cementing a reputation as a player particularly adept at No-Limit Hold 'em large field style tournaments, as his previous bracelet in 2006 also came about via a field that was more than one 1,000 players strong.

Other well known players to cash in Event #5 included Antonio Esfandiari (211th), Shaun Deeb (164th), Shannon Shorr (111th), Dewey Tomko (98th), Adam Levy (51st) and WSOP Circuit star Dwyte Pilgrim, who went out in 20th for $15,222.

The final table finish positions for Event #5 of the 2010 World Series of Poker were as follows:

1st.  Praz Bansi- $515,501

2nd.  Vincent Jacques- $320,913

3rd.  Calvin Kordus- $223,069

4th.  David Tuthill- $160,654

5th.  Tomer Berda- $117,416

6th.  Donald Offord- $86,858

7th.  Hugh Bell- $65,097

8th.  David Sands- $49,409

9th.  Kyle Knecht- $37,943
