Hand 274: Brian O'Donoghue received a walk.
Hand 275: O'Donoghue opened to 240,000 and Barny Boatman folded.
Hand 276: Boatman opened to 240,000 and O'Donoghue three-bet to 550,000. Boatman responded with a four-bet to 1.1 million then called when O'Donoghue moved all-in.
The crowd rose to their feet as the dealer put the flop onto the felt, improving Boatman to a set but also giving O'Donoghue outs to a straight.
"Deuce! Deuce" Boatman's rail pleaded.
The turn was the and the river the . With that Boatman had won his first bracelet and his enormous rail's cheers blew the roof off the Rio! Boatman's brother Ross embraced Barny before the British rail chanted, "There's only one Barny Boatman" while Boatman strutted his stuff in front of them. Amazing scenes, indeed.
