Badih "Bob" Bounahra: 2011 WSOP November Nine

At 49 years old, Badih Bounahra is by far and away the oldest player to make the November Nine.

He's originally from Lebanon and is a former resident of Ft. Lauderdale who now lives in Belize and runs the private poker room in the Princess Casino in Belize City.

Bounahra also runs a wholesaler and grocery business, is a father of three and goes by the name "Bob."

He has eight listed cashes on the Hendon Mob database with the biggest being a first-place finish in a $1,020 No-Limit Hold’em Second Chance tournament on the LAPT in 2008 for $30,054.

His massive cash in the 2011 World Series of Poker Main Event is now his second official WSOP cash. His first came in 2008, when he finished 51st in a $2,000 No Limit Hold’em event for $7,500. 

Along with 35-year-old Martin Straszko from the Czech Republic, he has to be considered the other real wild card at the final table with not much known about his play.

He is the first player from Belize to make the final table of the WSOP Main Event.
