PLAYER PROFILE – ASHIF ‘BABLOO’ WALJI

Babloo as he’s affectionately known thanks to a nickname given to him by his older sister when he was about 2 years old as she couldn’t pronounce his name, and it kinda stuck.

Babloo is a Casino mogul, like Andy Garcia in Oceans 11, although much nicer. Babloo hails from Kenya where he was born and spent his whole life, in fact he really loves Kenya and wouldn’t choose to live anywhere else.

You really couldn’t tell by sitting with Babloo that he’s so successful in the Casino industry, he comes across as very dis-arming, genuine and approachable, unlike other poker players who always act like they don’t know me, I’m talking to you Divan Le Roux.

This family man who has been married to his lovely wife for 20 years already, and has 2 kids, a 13 year old girl (good luck with that) and a 17 year old boy. He’s been playing poker for 18 years and started playing poker when he stumbled across it at a casino he was involved in, and from then he’s been hooked. He has three casinos that operate in Nairobi and Mombasa.

The most surprising thing to me about Bubloo is his affinity to party, in fact he’s promised to go all out after the main event, party by invite only (I’m only writing this thing so I get the call). Babloo’s favorite poker player is Tom Dwan, who could blame him for loving the cash beast.

Babloo hosts his own major poker tournaments in Nairobi 4 times a year, that players like Wesley Wiegand and Darren Kramer used to surface for. These days his South African contingent is small, but we’re hoping to change that! Take note his next big tournament is on the 31st of March a $350 buy-in with rebuys…I’ll post some promotional goodies soon!

Bubloo, we’re glad to have you, if there were more Bubloo’s in the poker community, firstly the field would be much tougher, but more importantly the game would garner a more respectful reputation. Good luck and a pleasure meeting you!
