Man With Funny Name Wins WSOP Event 10

In what is sure to go down as the heads-up battle with the two craziest names, Reza Payvar bested Toto Leonidas for the $2,000 Limit Hold'em (Event #10) crown.  Rezatoto_2 

Toto has received some big-time TV exposure over the years, particularly driving Phil Hellmuth insane at the 2003 US Poker Championship in Atlantic City.  While no Toto, Reza Payvar is no stranger to success either, placing in high profile tournaments over the past few years.  For his win, Reza rakes $303,610.  Toto takes $160,185. 

The best part of this final though is the two final combatant's names.  If we wrote a poker movie, we would have players with names like Reza Payvar and Toto Leonidas.  In fact, our faux-final table might also include names such as: Ang Dong, Papa Pestone, Skipper Paraguay, Hank Gams, Barzi Nicolitus, and Phil "Philip" Peppers.  If you have any other made-up great poker names, please comment below.  Really, poker names are like Soap Opera characters, just less porno-sounding.  Well, except maybe Ang Dong.

do we have a Curly yet? If good enough for the Globetrotters it's good enough for poker.
Perhaps Lee Watkinson


Texarkana Fats (aka "Slim"), more of a nickname or nicknames, plural, than an actual name, but I wanted to post on this topic seeing how the poker world does need more solid names/nicknames.


Ben. Just "Ben." You can just hear Norman Chad, which is a terrible poker name, broadcasting, "And Ben raises. Ben forces Toto out of the pot. That's right folks, he's so good, he just goes by Ben."


Zeelong "Freeman" Dong is still my favorite. It's a poker name that would have worked equally well for a character in a 1980s John Hughes film or a 1980s John Holmes film.

I think we need more Phils playing too. Definitely not enough. Seriously though I guess its better to have it be Phil and not a name like Dick....could you imagine Dick Hellmuth or Dick Lack or Dick Ivey?
