Ramdin, Williams rock stock exchange

|

Tuesday was one of those days on Walll Street that makes everybody happy. The markets rallied and just about everybody ended the day on a high note. When the closing bell rang on the NASDAQ, one Montel Williams did the ringing. Just behind him stood Team PokerStars Pro Victor Ramdin.

As you might remember, Williams had a banner day at the 2007 World Series of Poker. For a period of time during Day 1, Williams held the chip lead and the attention of everybody in the Rio Amazon Ballroom. During the Ante Up For Africa charity tournament, Wiilliams ended up chatting with Ramdin. After a brief Chat, Williams busted Ramdin out of the event. While the game was over, their friendship remained. It took them all the way to Wall Street.
