#19: A Former Detainee Becomes a Poker Champion, With Ilyas Muradi

Recent WPT champion Ilyas Muradi joins Third Man Walking to discuss his improbable path to poker glory.

I learned about Muradi's story from the following articles:

Sean Chaffin: "WPT champion's journey: Ilyas Muradi transitions from detention to domination" www.worldpokertour.com/news/wpt-cham…o-domination/

Charles Rabin: "From immigration 'cage' to newest poker champ at Hard Rock. An Afghan refugee's luck returns"

Spencer Woodman: "'Solitary Voices' detainee wins big, but remains in immigration limbo" www.icij.org/inside-icij/2021/0…immigration-limbo/
