Event 7: “The Maestro”

$150 No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 26:  Blinds 20,000/40,000/4,000

To say Andrei “The Maestro” Ebrahimpour has boundless energy is an understatement. During last night’s Flight 1F and today’s Day 2, Ebrahimpour has been constantly up and down out of his chair and keep his tables upbeat with his constant banter. The carpet is nearly worn down from him leaving his seat and talking to his friend on the rail who put him in the tournament and he’s had a happy-go-lucky attitude being short-stacked nearly all the way through to this final 27.

He may have made a mistake when he got three of the blue 25k chips and proclaimed “I haven’t had any of these all tournament!” and then realized the jinx possibilities he’d just opened up.

No matter what, Andrei has brought some life and excitement to Event 7 as he tries to claim the $46,832 first prize.
