Ray Dehkharghani Poker Profile:  Winner of 2013 Wynn Classic Championship

Keep a close eye on Ray Dehkharghani.  He’s managed two impressive cashes during the month of March.

Dehkharghani finished 37th at the Bay 101 Shooting Star Main event earlier in the month but it was the CardPlayer World Tour Wynn Classic Championship that has propelled him to the next level.

This time around he topped a field of 207 players and walked away with his biggest win to date, $235,931.

“I might have won two small limit tournaments at the WSOP along the way, but this is my biggest no-limit score without question,” the 42-year-old told CardPlayer.com after the win. 

Dehkharghani beat big name player Sam Stein head’s up.

“I was at a big experience deficit and the guys at the final table, especially Sam [Stein] and Tom [Marchese], they are both very accomplished players. I just basically had a good day. I learned a lot from them, they are very technically proficient and it was just a great learning experience,” he said.
