PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Crowns Victor, Poorya Nazari
The much anticipated PokerStars Caribbean Adventure has finally come and gone, leaving in its wake a number of highly skilled, significantly richer participants. The most notable among them is Poorya Nazari, a 22 year old Canadian poker player whose impeccable talent awarded him $3 million for routing the competition at the PCA Main Event.

“It hasn’t sunk in yet,” came the immediate reaction of Nazari after just having eliminated his final, heads-up opponent, Tony Gregg. “It feels unbelievable, surreal. I can’t believe it’s happening!”
Along with his $3 million 1st place prize for winning the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, Nazari is also being awarded a sponsored seat in the European Poker Tour Grand Final. This will be Poorya’s first trip to Europe, a multi-faceted profiteering opportunity in Monte Carlo later this year.
Poorya Nazari’s road to millionaire status is an amazing one, costing a mere $33 out of pocket. From his home in Richmond Hills, Canada, Nazari won a $33 rebuy turbo tournament at the PokerStars online poker room. After winning a series of these intense tournaments on the single buy-in, Nazari (as well as 746 other online poker players), found himself packing his bags for the Bahamas to take part in the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event.
Poorya Nazari is no stranger to poker play, though most of his skills are displayed in the online environment. Nazari graduated from McMaster University just last year, where he studied biochemistry, but has been sustaining a healthy income from online poker play at PokerStars for several years now.
