WSOP 2011: Ramdin building on fourth cash of '11 Series

wsop2011-thumb-blog.pngVictor Ramdin doesn't scream. He doesn't call for the cameras. He doesn't dance around a room and declare himself the best. Ramdin gets it quietly and lets his record speak for itself. As a result, it's rare to see banner headlines with his name included. To make that happen, Ramdin has to be doing something fairly significant.

So, this morning when ESPN's poker Twitter feed mentioned Ramdin's name, it became clear that's the Team PokerStars Pro from the Bronx is again being noticed outside the PokerStars Blog realm. He's once again letting his game speak for him.

With the 2011 World Series of Poker only a couple of weeks old, Ramdin is still alive and in the money in the $1,500 HORSE event. Already guaranteed more than $7,000, Ramdin is marking his fourth cash of this year's WSOP. With 17 players remaining, Ramdin sits in eighth place.


Ramdin's WSOP resume goes back to 2003 when he notched his first Series cash. His 20th place finish in a pot-limit hold'em tourney earned him less than $4,000. Since then, he's put up 22 total WSOP cashes worth more than $300,000.

Ramdin is no stranger to HORSE, either. In 2008, Ramdin made the final table of this same event. He placed 7th for more than $32,000. If Ramdin manages to make the final table today, it will be his fourth in the past eight years.

Good luck today, Victor, in the chase for your first WSOP bracelet.
