This year, he’s done it again— outdoing the competition and even himself; bagging 5 APT titles and 21 ITM finishes notching the 2013 APT Player of the Year title for the second straight year.

Razavi is joined by the Philippines’ Maria Carmen Esdaile, who finished at 2nd place with 1 APT title and 15 ITM finishes. Japan’s Tetsuya Tsuchikawa is at 3rd place with 3 APT titles and 12 ITMs.

During the still on-going APT-RWM Iron Man Poker Challenge, Razavi and the two runners-up were awarded their APT POY trophies and honored on-stage for a job well done this APT season.
