Congratulations Bahador Ahmadi, Winner of Event 47

Bahador Ahmadi

In the end, it took just one hand for Bahador Ahmadi to claim the bracelet.

When John McGuiness moved all in for his last 200,000, Ahmadi could easily afford the call after amassing a huge chip lead during the previous Limit session, mostly by calling down the uber-aggressive McGuiness.

Ahmadi played solidly over the course of the entire final table, changing gears when necessary and never appearing rattled even as play grew more aggressive at a short-handed table. In the end, his measured approach toward paid off with a victory worth $278,104 and a shiny new bracelet.

Congratulations to our deserving champion!

John McGuiness - 2nd
John McGuiness - 2nd
In the first hand heads up, it all went in on a {A-Diamonds} {2-Diamonds} {7-Spades} flop. McGuiness was in for his last 290,000 and Ahmadi made the call.

Ahmadi: {J-Diamonds} {3-Diamonds}
McGuiness: {10-Diamonds} {10-Hearts}

The turn was the {K-Diamonds} and that was it, McGuiness was drawing dead. The river was a meaningless {4-Clubs} and the two players embraced, McGuiness over $172,000 better off.

Ahmadi Asserts Chip Lead

Ahmadi raises preflop to 100,000 and McGuiness makes it 150,000 in the big blind.

The flop is {Q-Hearts} {J-Diamonds} {10-Spades} and both players check.

On the {2-?} turn Ahmadi bets 100,000 and McGuiness makes it 120,000. Ahmadi calls and both players check the {10-Clubs} river.

McGuiness shows {A-Spades} {7-Diamonds} but Ahmadi's {K-Spades} {2-Hearts} wins

Ahmadi Adds More

Ylon Schwartz raised from the small blind and Bahador Ahmadi called from the big.

Schwartz then bet each street on a board of {10-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{4-Spades} before turning over {Q-Clubs}{8-Clubs} for queen high, which couldn't beat Ahmadi's pair of 7s with his {9-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}.

McGuiness Doubles Through Ahmadi

Ahmadi raises preflop and McGuiness calls.

{8-Clubs} {2-Clubs} {K-Diamonds}

Ahmadi bets and McGuiness calls.


Ahmadi bets again and McGuiness raises, Ahmadi reraises McGuiness all in and the latter calls.

Ahmadi: {J-Diamonds} {8-Diamonds}
McGuiness: {K-Spades} {4-Clubs}

The river is the {A-Spades} and McGuiness avoids the bullets to double up.

Ahmadi Gets Some Back

In what's becoming a two player fight, John McGuiness raised and Bahador Ahmadi called taking us to a flop of {6-Hearts}{A-Spades}{Q-Clubs}.

Ahmadi bet and McGuiness called, taking us to the turn where both players checked the {5-Clubs}. Ahmadi then bet the {2-Spades} on the river. McGuiness raised, Ahmadi three bet, and McGuiness four bet before showing ace-four for top pair.

It wasn't good enough though, as Ahmadi showed ace-queen for top two and took the pot.
