John Bowman Wins WSOPC Cherokee For $250k

John Bowman Wins WSOPC Cherokee For $250kJohn Bowman has won the inaugural WSOPC Cherokee Main Event, after defeating a field of 856 players over three days to lift the title, and collect the $250,380 first place prize. The local man was also awarded a $10k ticket to the 2013 WSOP Main Event for his remarkable efforts.
Furthermore, the roofer from North Carolina initially won his seat through to the $1,500 buy-in event via a satellite, and after taking down his first major poker tournament, commented: “This is such a big deal to me. Money is tight for us right now, so to play in the main event and then get all the way up here is just unimaginable.”
The huge 856 player field ensured a prize pool worth $1,284,000, and amongst those notable names cashing in for a slice of the pie was such pros as Kyle Cartwright in 54th and Greg Raymer in 29th.
By the time the nine-seated final table reached three-handed play, Raymond Weaver was the chip leader, followed by Daniel Weinman, while Bowman was sitting on a short stack. Nevertheless, Bowman managed to double-up through Weaver and before long Weaver was the short-stack at the table with his tournament hopes on the line. Those hopes came to an end when Weaver (K-3) called an all-in by Bowman (Ad-Qd) on a K-8d-4d-7d-A board to exit in 3rd for $113,968.
As heads-up then got underway, Bowman held a 13 million to 4 million chip advantage over Weinman, and before long the defining hand was played with Bowman (A-3) and Weinman (K-Q) all-in pre-flop. The board then rolled out A-8-3-K-5 to relegate Daniel Weinman to a runner-up finish worth $154,722, while John Bowman was crowned the 2013 WSOPC Cherokee champion.
The final table payouts were as follows:
1 John Bowman      $250,380
2 Daniel Weinman  $154,722
3 Raymond Weaver  $113,968
4 Kory Kilpatrick  $85,052
5 George Zinaty       $64,303
6 James Kinney       $49,241
7 Hugh Henderson   $38,186
8 Jonathan Moseley $29,981
9 Jerry Monroe       $23,831
