It hasn't been Barny Boatman's day yet, as another attempt at WSOP Circuit glory failed. The board read and the pot was up over 20,000. With action on Boatman, the Brit moved in with his remaining stack of 17,000.
Verhaegen needed just five seconds, then calmly flicked in a calling ship. Boatman instantly mucked his hand, but rules force hands to be shown in an all-in situation. Boatman was forced to open for five-high and Verhaegen showed to secure the elimination.
