Winner's Interview: Sheraz Nasir

Sheraz Nasir Becomes the First WPT Champion of Season XIV

Level 33: 100,000-200,000, 25,000 ante

Sheraz Nasir Wins
Sheraz Nasir kept history from happening on Wednesday evening. Nasir defeated Lu Zhang heads-up to win the WPT partypoker Spring Canadian Championship to keep her from becoming the first female winner in a WPT open event.

The grueling heads-up battle lasted over three and a half hours and over 100 hands with the chip lead swaying back and forth. In the final few hands, Nasir was able to pull away with the chip lead and finish the job to win the first WPT title of Season XIV, CAD $255,408, a seat into the WPT Championship, a WPT Champions trophy and a Playground Poker Club Champions Belt.

The first stop of the season saw 370 players make their way to Montreal and pony up the CAD $3,500 buy-in, generating just shy of a CAD $1 million prizepool.

Over five days of action, the 370 was trimmed down to the final six, who came back to the Playground Poker Club to battle it out for the title.

It didn't take long for the action to heat up as WPT Champions Club member Dylan Wilkerson, the most accomplished player at the final table, was eliminated on the first hand of the day when his pocket nines lost a flip against Levi Stevens' ace-jack.

Zhang eliminated Trevor Delaney in fifth place, which gave Zhang most of the chips in play and a big chip lead over the rest of the field. It was four-handed when Nasir won a tournament changing pot through Zhang.

Nasir got all in on a king-high flop with king-jack and was in bad shape against Zhang's pocket aces. Nasir found a king on the river to double up, stay alive and take away the chip lead from Zhang. He carried that chip lead to heads-up play, where he defeated Zhang and ensured that the WPT would have to wait at least one more stop before a female open event champion is crowned.

Here are a look at the final table results:

1.  Sheraz Nasir  -  CAD $255,408
2.  Lu Zhang  -  CAD $166,402
3.  Levi Stevens  -  CAD $106,820
4.  Gary Lucci  -  CAD $79,130
5.  Trevor Delaney  -  CAD $59,340
6.  Dylan Wilkerson  -  CAD $47,470

Hand #225: Sheraz Nasir Wins the partypoker WPT Canadian Spring Championship (CAD $255,408)

Level 33: 100,000-200,000, 25,000 ante

Sheraz Nasir Wins
Lu Zhang raises to 525,000, and Sheraz Nasir calls.

Both players check to the turn on a board of Jdiamond6spade3spade6heart, Nasir bets 500,000, Zhang moves all in for 1,750,000, and Nasir calls with 2spade2diamond for an underpair.

Zhang turns over Aspade2club for ace high, and she needs to improve to stay alive.

The river card is the 7diamond, and Sheraz Nasir wins the pot — and the WPT title — with pocket deuces.

Lu Zhang finishes as the runner-up, earning CAD $166,402.

Sheraz Nasir wins the partypoker WPT Canadian Spring Championship, earning CAD $255,408. That amount includes his US $15,400 entry into the season-ending WPT World Championship. Nasir also wins a WPT Champions Trophy and a Playground Poker Club Champions Belt, and his name will be engraved on the one-and-only WPT Champions Cup, alongside all the other WPT champions from 13+ seasons.

Congratulations to Sheraz Nasir!
