WSOP Africa Goes to Rahme


The $158,595 main prize stays in Africa

After a fierce battle between 218 entrants into the $3,300 buy-in World Series of Poker Africa main event, it was a local player, Joe-Boy Rahme, who beat the likes of Mark Vos, Scotty Nguyen and Warren Zackey, last year's champ, to the main prize of $158,595.

A Johannesburg-based pro, Rahme had to defeat some formidable competitors on his way to the prize – especially on a final table that included Ivan Pakkiri, Jason Straus, James Parker, Gregory Ronaldson, Marc Joseph, Brad Flynn, Matt Mulhall and Brian Bouwer.

In the heads up, Rahme was better than Ivan Pakkiri, whom he left with a runner up paycheck for $98,012.
