First Five With Bracelet Winner Ashkan Razavi

First Five With Bracelet Winner Ashkan Razavi 0001

We caught up with Ashkan Razavi after his victory in Event #9: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Re-Entry to get some of his initial thoughts after winning his first bracelet.

What's the first thing you're going to do as a bracelet winner?

First thing I'm going to do as a bracelet winner? I haven't really thought about it yet. I'm going to probably go out and get some drinks with my rail and just show them my appreciation. Have a little fun.

What's the first thing you're going to buy?

Well, me and my girlfriend just had a baby and we're desperately in need of a minivan. So I think that has to go on the top of the list.

Who's the first person you're going to call and tell?

My mom. Laughs

What's the first thought you had after winning?

Sweet.

Who's the first person you hugged, or high-fived, after winning?

I don't know... Hmmm.

Then Ashkan's girlfriend interjected

It was definitely Matt, he jumped right over the rail.

Ashkan continues

Oh yeah. Matt Jarvis jumped right over the rail and pretty much tackled me.

For his first place win, Ashkan Razavi took home $781,398. Definitely enough to buy a minivan and much much more.

What do you think?
