Marco Johnson Wins Event #48 $2,500 Limit Hold'em Six Handed

Marco Johnson has finished runner-up at a WSOP event not less than three times in his career! Last Saturday, however, he finally laid hands on his first bracelet by besting a field of 343 players in Event #48 $2,500 Limit Hold'em Six Handed (an event he finished 2nd in last year). Besides the coveted gold bracelet, Johnson received $206,796 in prize money - the second biggest cash of his career!

Barny Boatman Wins Event #49: $1,5000 No-Limit Hold'em

The third and final day of this event started with 21 players, who already were guaranteed a payday of $15,622 - with the chance of taking home $546,080! At the end of the night it was Barny Boatman, a British poker pro with tournament cashes dating back to 1998, who was the last man standing! Boatman played very well during the last day and eliminated several opponents on the final table, so it was definitely a well-deserved win!

Nice reading about everyone winning their bracelets and the cash to go along with it. Damn, sure would be fun to just hang out during this time and be able to play in a couple events. I know that would cost a bundle in itself, but the memory would be worth it.

I don't remember hearing about Kristen Bicknell but she must have played well at the Women's Tourney tables. It would be nice to see her going for other events. After all, she had Amanda Baker doing company for her at the final table and it doesn't seem like she was afrraid of that.

Wow, to finish runner up three times he must have thought that his chance of ever winning a bracelet had gone. So a very big congratulations to him for hanging on in there and determination saw him through in the end
