Ok, so Nabil Hirezi is experienced at the tables and he knew what he was doing and what would expect him at the final table because he plays almost everyday. What is more intriguing is the fact of being a dentist. That easily explains the fact of having $3,500 available to pay for the buy-in.

The truth is he just got rewarded for that and we know it was for a good man who helps his comunity. Nice!

Yep,...nice to see the little guy win big like that...! Being that he's a dentist, he probably doesn't need the money,...but still,...it's still a fine prize...! His wife will probably spend it all on shoes...! < heheee...
I have it on good word,..that he and his buddies use extracted teeth for chips....
