2015 WSOP Europe: Barny Boatman Wins €550 Pot-Limit Omaha

2015 WSOP Europe: Barny Boatman Wins €550 Pot-Limit OmahaBritish poker veteran Barny Boatman has won a second career WSOP bracelet, after taking down Event #7 of the 2015 World Series of Poker Europe, €550 Pot-Limit Omaha. While the €54,725 he picked up in Berlin was about one-tenth of the $546,080 he earned for his 2013 WSOP $1,500 NL victory in Vegas, the win was no less sweet, especially as the 59 year-old pro admits to catching the “bug” and intently pursing a second career bracelet over the past two years.
“I’ve had so many big stacks in big tournaments and things have gone wrong, so I never really thought it would happen for me. But once it did happen, my attitude changed.. I wanted to do it again.. This is my third or fourth final since I won the first one and I was really going after it.”
The WSOPE €550 Pot-Limit Omaha event attracted 503 players to create a prize pool worth €243,955. Amongst the well-known pros booking a cash spot was Ole Schemion in 45th (€1,000), Roland Israelashivili in 31st (€1,460), Davidi Kitai in 29th (€1,460), and John Gale in 12th (€3,515).
At the final table of eight, Barny Boatman took out Jose Obadia in 4th (€18,000), and Shannon Shorr in 3rd (€24,510) to go heads-up against Poland’s Grzegorz Grochulski for the title. Despite starting behind by 2:1, Boatman then quickly managed to turn the tables before eventually clinching the deal. Commenting on a remarkable performance which now boosts his live career earnings to $3,042,116, Boatman said:
“Things have just been falling into place a bit for me. There was a time when the cards went on their backs that I wouldn’t have been the one to win it. I had a long period of time where I was building big stacks in big events, getting close to the money and things weren’t working out. I guess it’s like buses, they all come along at once.”
Final Table Results:
1: Barny Boatman – €54,725
2: Grzegorz Grochulski – €33,910
3: Shannon Shorr – €24,510
4: Jose Obadia – €18,000
5: Doug Lee – €13,220
6: Dominik Maska – €9,980
7: Pawl Bakiewicz – €7,560
8: Damian Pawlak – €5,780
