Bob Bounahra, at 49 years young, is the most senior member of the final table. He was one of the short stacks heading into the last day to complete the final table but with patience and perseverance, managed to work his way back into contention. His most important pot came by winning a huge double-up during the late stages of 10-handed play. He would end up crippling John Hewitt who went out a few hands later, which secured his spot in the November Nine.

Bounahra got his start in poker around 6 years ago after being a fan of watching it on TV. Bounahra was a such a huge fan that he now runs a poker room in Belize City. He has had some respectable results in the past both online and live. Prior to the WSOP Main Event, Bounahra has had $72,766 in live winnings and $180,510 in prizes on PokerStars.
