Tournament Notes:

  • The winner was Burt Boutin from Henderson, Nevada. Boutin is originally from Pennsylvania. He was (and remains) a highly-successful stock trader when he is not playing poker. Boutin is 39-years-old. He has three children.
  • With this victory, Boutin officially became the 77th “WSOP Millionaire” in history. He has now won over $1 million at the WSOP dating back to his first cash in 1999.
  • This was Boutin’s second WSOP gold bracelet. He previously won the $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold’em tournament back in 2001. That was also his first WSOP cash.
  • By odd coincidence, Boutin won his first WSOP title by defeating David “DevilFish” Ulliot in heads-up play. Six years later at this final table, Boutin was all-in against DevilFish with his tournament life on the line. He spiked a nine for a straight and dashed Ulliot’s hopes for revenge. The DevilFish ended up going out in third place. He was forced to watch history repeat itself, as Boutin took the top prize.
  • This was the richest pot-limit Omaha tournament in history, by far. The total prize pool amounted to nearly $3 million. First place paid $825,956.
  • The top 18 money list read like a “Who’s Who” of poker. Ten of the final 18 players hold WSOP gold bracelets. The final table of nine players included a combined seven former gold bracelets previously won
  • John Juanda (with 3 wins), Humberto Brenes (with 2 wins), Burt Boutin (win one win), and David “DevilFish” Ulliot (with one win)
  • The final table will be telecast by ESPN, most likely in July or August. The air date has yet to be determined.
