Poker is copious with opportunities where players from every country can plunge into high-profile tournaments with large pool prizes to wring out substantial sums of money. Annand Mahendra “Victor” Ramdin hails from Georgetown, Guyana and has won the WPT Championship while playing as a member of the Team PokerStars.
His career started in 2003 after lengthy training by first playing at the WSOP, later in the WPT and other challenging events where his star has continued to shine or squeezed out earnings in the process. Though poker is known to be highly complex, this has not deterred him from advancing his dexterity in playing the game. On the anvil of ranking, his performance is excellent in his backyard and average at the international yardstick.
Ramdin played at the WSOP in 2003 where he got his first in the money finish in a $2,000 Pot Limit Texas Hold’em tournament. Ramdin performed excellently in the US Poker Championship where he ousted Greenstein to receive the “Ace on the River” by Barry Greenstein.
