Another major tournament, another excellent finish from the Englishman. Sam Razavi, from the United Kingdom capped off 2012 with a 2nd runner-up finish at the inaugural World Poker Tour (WPT) China which had a $1,500 Main Event that saw a total of 542 runners.

Razavi took down $48,101 for his effort beating the likes of Phil Hellmuth, Johnny Chan and David Chiu among many other poker luminaries. The win added yet another cap to his feather after wins at the Asian Poker Tour (APT) and Australia New Zealand Poker Tour (ANZPT) earlier this year.

The top three finishers also received a World Poker Tour L.A. Poker Classic package.
