Christophe Claret partners with 2011 WSOP Main Event final table player Badih Bounahra
November 4, 2011
In anticipation of the 2011 World Series of Poker Main Event Championship, Christophe Claret has partnered with one of the final nine poker players, Badih "Bob" Bounahra. 6,865 players started Day 1 of the WSOP Main Event 2011 and they all played eight long days until only nine players remained - The November Nine.
Badih Bounahra was a surprise, as he is not a professional player. Christophe Claret sales manager, Phil Ogle, met with Bounahara in Las Vegas November and asked him, "Do you think you will win the tournament?" Bounahara said, "Each of the other eight players didn't get there by chance. It's anybody's game."
Badih Bounahara will wear a Christophe Claret Blackjack 21 on his wrist at the WSOP final table, as well as future poker events. Television coverage of the 2011 WSOP main event begins soon, look for the Blackjack 21 on Bounahara's wrist.
