The Beginning

Mohsin’s poker career began with a simple invite to a home game held in a friend’s dorm room on the University of Illinois campus where he was studying finance. He immediately became interested in the game and began developing his skills while playing a few times a week with friends. He found that he had a natural talent for the game, and was able to hustle the school’s ‘rich’ kids out of enough money to cover his rent each month.

$200,000 to $0 to Success

When Mohsin turned 21 he had built up enough of a bankroll to make a trip to Vegas. After 2 weeks, several postponed flights, and a lot of poker, Mohsin sat at the table with a staggering $200,000 in chips in front of him. Unfortunately he lost his entire fortune on 2 unlucky hands and found himself on the phone to his mother, asking for money to purchase a flight home. Shortly afterwards, he applied for a personal credit card, made a deposit into an online account, and won a $100,000 guarantee tournament. He learned a great lesson in bankroll management and has never looked back.

Tournament Results

In just 3 short years Mohsin has won over $3.5 million in online tournaments. His biggest online cash came in 2010 from a 1st place victory in PokerStars SCOOP event #20 for $380,000. Mohsin has been consistent in reaching final tables in WPT and NAPT events while also having final tables in Sunday Millions, FTOPS, and WCOOP High Roller events with a win in the Mini FTOPS.

Stamping his name in the record books

Charania had a huge breakthrough in April 2012, winning the one of the most prestigious tournaments in the world, the EPT Grand Final in Monte Carlo. He took home $1,782,343 with the win and brought his total live tournament earnings to $2.3 million!
