Poker Bad Boys Take VegasThe Hendon Mob are taking no prisoners at the first stop on their Prima Poker World Poker Tour. Team members Ram ‘CrazyHorse’ Vaswani, Joe ‘The Elegance’ Beevers and Barmy Barny Boatman came in 1st, 4th and 5th respectively on Sunday’s $500 Pot Limit Omaha at the Four Queens Poker Classic in Las Vegas.
“It was a short field today but probably the toughest so far. The big boys have arrived. Scotty Nguyen, Mike Sexton and An Tran to name but a few. They were all at Barny’s table but that didn’t hinder my big brother who turned $1,000 into $11,000 in the first hour and a half. He clashed with Scotty in a huge pot. They both had aces and all the chips went in on the flop when Scotty check raised Barny. Barny flopped the nut flush draw and paired one of his other cards. Free-rolling with 14 outs Barny was unlucky to split the pot,” according to Mobster Ross Boatman.
But more important than the money was the affirmation that The Mob are as furiously competitive amongst themselves as they are against ‘civilian’ players. “Ram knocked out Barny and then Joe,” commented Ross. ” Three left Scotty, ‘Walking’ Bob and Ram ‘CrazyHorse’ Vaswani. “We couldn’t expect Ram to do all the work and after delivering Scotty a fatal blow Bob finished him off.
The final two played cat and mouse for what seemed like an age but Bob was no match for the Horse. Ram found aces double suited re-raising Bob before the flop and when they both flopped a flush draw the mouse was caught in the trap.” The final result, a combined $26,480 win for the bad boys.
