Barny Boatman Wins Event #49 and his First WSOP Bracelet ($546,080)
 

Barny Boatman

Barny Boatman is the latest big name to win a World Series of Poker bracelet after he took down Event #49 of the 2013 WSOP amid emotional scenes in the Amazon Room of the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

The third and final day of the $1,500 No Limit Hold'em event started with 21 players, all of them in the money. Kevin MacPhee was the first player eliminated and he was followed to the cashier cage by a steady stream of eliminations. When Michael Quick's pocket queens lost out to Paul DaSilva's    – DaSilva turned a flush – the final table was set.

Roger Lussier was the first player eliminated at the final table; his    could not come from behind to beat the dominating    of Brian O'Donoghue.

Seven hands later, Noah Sandler's tournament came to an abrupt end, again at the hands of O'Donoghue. Sandler committed his stack with    on a      flop but ran into the    of O'Donoghue. Sandler didn't improve to a full house and the tournament was down to seven players.

Seven became six on Hand 28 of the final table when DaSilva made an ill-timed move with    on a     flop while Boatman was sat with    for a set of nines. DaSilva received no help from the turn or river and he crashed out in seventh place.

Robin Ylitalo finished in sixth place after a blind-versus-blind confrontation with Boatman. Ylitalo shoved with    and Boatman called with   . Ylitalo caught a six on the     flop, but the   turn and   river improved Boatman to a flush and sent Yliatlo home early than many would have expected.

Boatman continued his spell of eliminating players when on Hand 58 Aditya Prasetyo moved all in from the cutoff with pocket tens and Boatman made an easy call from the big blind with a pair of queens. The ace-high board was void of drama and Prasetyo exited.

Taras Kripps' stack had started to dwindle and he made a move with   . Unfortunately for Kripps, O'Donoughe woke up with    and made the call. Kripps caught a king on the turn of the       board, but the river improved O'Donoghue to a straight and resigned Kripps to a fourth place finish.

Three-handed play lasted almost 30 hands and ended when Van Tran's tournament did. Tran lost a huge pot that left him with less than four big blinds, but he started to make a comeback by winning four all-in hands in a row. On his fifth attempted he jammed with    and O'Donoghue called with   . A king on the flop and an ace on the river crushed Tran's hand and the tournament went heads-up.

Boatman and O'Donoghue started the one-on-one battle within one big blind of each other and neither player really ran away with proceedings. The match was less than epic, except in length (174 hands), but the scenes after Hand #276 of the final table were a remarkable sight.

Hand #276 of the final table saw Boatman open to 240,000 and O'Donoghue three-bet to 550,000. Boatman made it 1.1 million and O'Donoughue moved all in. Boatman called with    and was up against   . A board reading       sealed the deal for Boatman, who was mobbed by his rail, his brother Ross leading the celebrations that are sure to go on long into the night.
