Belizean Rhapsody

by , Nov 6, 2011 | 7:58 pm

You can generally count on foreigners to bring the most festive crowds to WSOP final tables. Even moreso, obv, when we’re talking about the November Nine and/or a country with a population the size of Bakersfield, California (about 350k).

Some 200 Belizeans made the trip to Las Vegas (pop. 584k), and got to see Badih “Bob” BouNahra bust out in 6th place … for a cool $1.3 million. (Click here for November Nine payouts.) And with that came celebratory festivities that only a tropical paradise that’s essentially a shmancy English-speaking suburb of Honduras could provide.

For more of the Belizean beat … I also recorded an extended-mix version here (before it occurred to me to turn on the video cam).

    English-speaking suburb of Honduras?  Never learned geography eh?

    Lol. I looked at the map and originally was gonna say English speaking suburb of costa rica, but realized that was a little geographically off. Honduras was my best second effort.

    We are bordered by Guatemala and Mexico.  Either would be a better reference…  But I prefer to think of both as Belize wannabees.

    your use of “eh” makes me think you might be (originally) from Canada … which I can’t help but think of as the Oklahoma of North America.
