Hendon Mob's Barny Boatman Wins UK’s First Bracelet Of WSOP 2013

Hendon Mob's Barny Boatman Wins UK’s First Bracelet Of WSOP 2013 English poker pro Barny Boatman has just won his first ever gold bracelet  at the World Series of Poker, as well as his country’s first at this year’s competition. The 58 year old Londoner has been cashing in at poker tournaments since 1998, and with his latest victory in La Vegas, now takes his career earnings to $2,701,544.
Barny Boatman captured the prestigious bracelet Saturday night at WSOP $1,500 No Limit Hold’em (Event #49), having overcome a large field of 2,247 players over three days on his way to collecting the $546,080 first place prize. Following his remarkable accomplishment, Boatman explained:
“I had no idea who much this would mean until it happened. I’ve been coming here for quite a few years now. I must have played over a hundred gold bracelet events. I even got heads-up once. I came second. I had no idea it would feel this good, honestly.”
The $1,500 No Limit Hold’em event attracted an impressive array of poker talent to create a prize pool worth $3,033,450. Amongst the notable names cashing in at the event was Neil Channing in 207th ($3,003), Faraz Jaka in 127th ($3,640), Eric Baldwin in 92nd ($4,095), Erica Schoenberg in 38th ($10,465), David Peters in 24th ($15,622), and Kevin MacPhee in 21st ($15,622).
At the final table of nine, Barny Boatman would then eventually beat US player Brian O’Donoghue heads-up to claim the bracelet, after which ‘The Hendon Mob’ member heaped praise on his fellow team mates, commenting:
“It wouldn’t mean a thing unless they were all here. We all got into poker together. We traveled the world together. We come here every year. Ross is a great player. He’s my best friend. Now, the only thing that could top this off would be to see him get his day because he really deserves is. They all won it for me. They made me feel so good.”
The final table payouts were as follows:
1st: Barny Boatman – $546,080
2nd: Brian O’Donoghue – $338,745
3rd: Van Tran – $239,339
4th: Tara Kripps – $172,087
5th: Aditya Prasetyo – $125,372
6th: Robin Ylitalo – $92,550
