"I was very fortunate to get all the hands and win all the flips," said the 33-year-old Gauray Raina after his WSOP $2500 No-Limit Hold’em win Sunday. "To make it heads-up when I was severely chip disadvantaged almost the whole final table, when the bracelet plopped in between us, I was like 'Oh man. I can't even look at this thing. If I look at it, the worse it's going to be for me when I don't get it.' So, I just decided to just not even give it any attention at all and just play the game as best I can."

Raina, a New Jersey-born transplant now residing in Athens, Georgia, came back for an extra unscheduled day of action to best a field of 1086 players and walk away with a cool $456,822.

"I've always been a cash player and I've done well at that," said Raina. "I was never really into tournaments and the more I saw my friends succeed at it and the more I talked strategy and what not to try and learn more myself, the more I realized that there is so much more potential to win like silly amounts of money in just a few days of playing."

1st: Guarav Raina - $456,822
